In little over four decades, severe acute malnutrition (SAM) treatment has gone from a small-scale clinical endeavour to a global public health service reaching over two million cases a year. This report, the first in a three part series, offers a comparative assessment of the performance and effectiveness of the model during two distinct periods of its development: from 2001-2006 when the majority of community-based treatment projects were implemented by NGOs; and from 2007-2013 when many community-based treatment programmes were integrated by ministries of health into regular health services.
