FEX 70 - Is maternal mid-upper arm circumference still relevant for use in humanitarian contexts?

Podcast  /  13 February 2024

In 2013, a comprehensive review of anthropometric indicators identified maternal mid-upper-arm circumference (MUAC) as a reliable indicator for risk of low birth weight (LBW) deliveries. Still, contention remains regarding what MUAC cut-off thresholds should be used to identify poor birth and maternal outcomes in humanitarian contexts. In this podcast, Sonia Kapil and Mija Ververs discuss findings from their recent scoping review of evidence published after 2012 which confirm a MUAC cut-off threshold of <23 cm as effective in identifying pregnant women at risk of adverse birth outcomes, particularly LBW. The authors provide insights into their motivation for this work and what it adds, as well as their perspectives on the potential implications of broader adoption of this threshold in nutrition programmes and on what evidence is still needed to better identify and manage at-risk pregnant women in humanitarian contexts.
