Dear colleagues
Does anyone know of reliable MUAC strips made of paper? I could imagine these could easily be used in Ebola Treatment Centres as single use strips. Many years ago I had them from TALC but not sure whether they were reliable and still around. Do you know?
Thanks so much, Mija

Thanks Colleen, I appreciate your suggestion. The ones you are referring to are , I quote: 'Made from durable PolyArt plastic'. I am specifically looking for MUAC tapes from paper.
