Dear Sher Singh Dahit,

There have been a couple of posts describing the Family MUAC approach, here:

I am not sure whether you have already seen those and whether they are helpful or whether you are looking to others to offer advice on the practical application of the approach during lockdown? 

If you can share further information about the situation in which you are working, that would be helpful. I would also encourage others to please share any advice or prgoramming guidance that you might have developed to use the Family MUAC approach in a lockdown situation. 

Many thanks,


Sher Singh Dahit

Thank you Tamsin for your response. 

Actually, I wanted the  information on, how to enhance capacity of mothers or family members for the MUAC measurement during full population mobility restriction situation.  Since quality of screening always becomes a challenge in the normal situation as well. 

Thanks, I got some fruitful information from your shared linked.
