WHO established guidelines for the treatment of severe acute malnutrition in 1999 and Member States have requested WHO to update their 1999 document. This guideline presents the updated evidence and practice for key interventions and will also serve to inform revisions of the manual. The guideline does not reflect all WHO recommendations related to the management of children with severe acute malnutrition but only those related to areas that were prioritized by the guideline development group.
