Is there an internationally accepted standard protocol for treating pregnant and lactating women with MAM? Which is more widely accepted for women who do not respond to treatment for MAM: should the program be time-bound – say for 4 months – or is the woman best kept in the program until she her MUAC is <210 or the baby is 6 months old regardless of whether her condition improves?
