Community-based Therapeutic Care (CTC): A Field Manual

Community Therapeutic Care (CTC) is an approach to managing acute malnutrition that has regularly featured in Field Exchange and was the subject of an ENN special supplement1. A field manual on CTC has now been developed in a collaboration between Valid International, Concern Worldwide, USAID's Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance (FANTA) Project, and Development Cooperation Ireland (DCI).

The manual provides programme managers, practitioners, and technical specialists addressing severe acute malnutrition with the essential design, implementation and evaluation protocols for implementing the CTC approach. As 1 http://www.fantaproject.org/ctc/ENNsupplement.shtml the CTC model is evolving, this first edition does not provide a step-by-step workbook for implementers, but rather offers a solid foundation to build CTC programmes at local and national levels.

To complement the release of the CTC Field Manual, a set of CTC training modules aimed at implementation of the CTC method for the management of acute malnutrition are in development. These training materials will be important to ensure that future implementers are proficient in the CTC method for managing acute malnutrition, and will be released after materials testing is complete.

A copy of the manual can be downloaded from the FANTA website at: http://www.fantaproject. org/ctc/manual2006.shtml or from the VALID website, http://www.validinternational. org/pages/

The first edition of the CTC Manual is also available in print. It costs £9.50, which includes a free CD, containing an electronic version of the manual with annexes in printable formats. Standard postage will be charged in addition to the cost of the manual. Order online at http://www.validinternational.org/pages/or contact: Alessandra Thomas at email: office@validinternational.org.
