Action Against Hunger-USA, with UNICEF and the US Centers for Disease Control, is leading new study in which organizations from around the world are coming together to systematically document, analyze and synthesize information related to adaptations (such as reduced dosage, , Family MUAC, ) made to outpatient programs, community-based programs, and community health worker platforms in the management of child wasting during COVID19.
Collaboration is critical to the success of this project. Please join us in showcasing your organization’s work, participating in knowledge generation and collaborating in identifying best practices in the treatment of child wasting. This study will kick-off with a short, 10-minute survey telling us what adaptations your organization is implementing. We are also interested in hearing experiences from organizations that have implemented IPC measures but chosen not to adapt standard protocols throughout the pandemic. Results of which will be used to generate a global map on the State of Acute Malnutrition website to facilitate uptake of this evidence and inform short- and long-term programming.
For more information, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do share the survey link with others as we hope to capture a widespread array of experiences
