Update on SQUEAC/SLEAC method

Valid International has been working with Mark Myatt and FANTA-2 to develop a training manual for the updated SQUEAC/SLEAC1 method for assessing coverage. This is being completed, field tested and should be available later this year.

In February and March this year, Valid International, Mark, UNICEF and the Ministry of Health and Sanitation of Sierra Leone worked together to use the new SLEAC/SQUEAC methodology to assess national coverage of treatment of severe acute malnutrition in Sierra Leone. This survey was extremely successful and illuminating and will be written up for a future edition of Field Exchange.
