Do we have a recommended correction factor that we can use for PLWs MAM burden estimation?

Hi There, you may look at this guidance from GNC 

For typical MAM PLW programming in TSFP (discharge only when infants reach 6 month), there should not be requiring any correction factor for the caseload estimation.

[Number of MAM PLW in need = MAM prevalence x population of PLW from
“Affected” areas]
