Hello, does anyone have any materials relating to PLW supplementary feeding? We are looking to begin implementing in Zambia where there aren't any national CMAM protocols. I have found this on the State of Acute Malnutrition, but it's not totally clear where its come from so if anyone has more information that would be helpful. In addition, any other standard protocols or training materials would be very much appreciated, thanks!

Dear Emily,

I couldn't access the link that you shared, unfortunately, but you may find these two documents useful as a starting point. Although not necessarily new or completely up to date they do provide a fair amount of guidance regarding PLW for both treatment of malnourished PLW and the blanket supplementary approach for prevention of malnutrition in this group of vulnerable women.
