hello all,


please could you share any knowledge of current programs that use MUAC alone for treatment of children with moderate acute malnutrition?
published articles of the quality of the excellent work that kate sadler and group did for MUAC and SAM would also be much appreciated


thank you

Probably not of the quality and not as practical as you may need ... but ... I have a briefing note and presentation on this that I developed for the WHO in 2010. You may find something of use in these.

I know that Kate Sadler has been working on a "MUAC only" protocol for CMAM of MAM which grows from her work on SAM. I can put you in contact with her if needed.
