Management of child wasting in the context of COVID-19

Author: UNICEF, Global Nutrition Cluster, Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (GTAM)
Year: 2020
Resource type: Official

To support implementers on how to prepare and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, a series of guidance briefs will be produced and updated every ten (10) days as new information and evidence emerges. This Brief is meant to provide information specific to services and programmes for the management of child wasting in the context of COVID-19, and it contains information that is not already available elsewhere. This Brief does not cover wider mitigation and response measures available in other guidance. As a nutrition community, we will continue to develop our understanding on practical solutions to deliver programming in the context of COVID-19.  
 
Documenting and disseminating this guidance  and emerging evidence and lessons will be key to implementing the most appropriate and effective responses in the face of this pandemic. Please share your questions and programmatic adaptations with us:
