Simplified Protocol for Acute Malnutrition-Updated simplified protocol 2-pager

A simplified, combined protocol is intended to simplify and unify the treatment of uncomplicated severe and moderate acute malnutrition for children ages 6-59 months into one protocol in order to improve the coverage, quality, continuity of care and cost-effectiveness of acute malnutrition treatment in resource-constrained settings. The simplified, combined protocol uses only ready-to-use food (RUF) at doses tested to optimize growth and minimize cost at each stage of treatment. Admission, progress and discharge is assessed using mid upper arm circumference (MUAC) and oedema only.
