Moderate Acute Malnutrition: A Decision Tool for Emergencies

UN Children’s Fund, Nutrition Cluster, March 2017

43 pp. 2.2 MB

A review of targeted supplementary feeding programmes in emergencies found that there was very limited data on the effectiveness of these programmes. Over the past several years there have been significant changes to strengthen nutrition programming in emergencies including the development of new specialised nutritious foods and a shift to greater emphasis on preventing acute malnutrition. This guidance is intended as interim operational guidance while further normative guidance is under development. Revisions and updates to this document will be made as needed.
