The purpose of the tool is to conduct gap analysis to improve nutrition cluster response. The tool is divided into 7 sheets, each providing a table for a particular type of gap analysis. Depending on your needs, you can use all of them or only choose particular sheets:
Moreover, two maps have been designed by working with CDC and GNC-CT
SAM in Need for treatment vs. SAM Admitted (Non-Cumulative) : The aim of this map is to compare estimations for cases in need for SAM treatment to existing cases enrolled for SAM treatment at district level . It seeks to identify districts where OTPs and SCs can anticipate an increase in admissions (and therefore require increased resources), on the basis of recent SMART survey data. Given that the SMART survey data utilised is cross-sectional, presenting a snapshot of needs at a particular moment in time, this map has a short shelf-life and should be published within a month of a SMART survey occurring.
Progress towards annual SAM treatment targets: This map aims to compare cumulative admissions, over the course of a year, to annual cluster targets,at the district level. The map seeks to determine which districts are on track to meet their annual targets and which districts require increased resources and support to scale-up the coverage of CMAM activities to meet needs.
