Consultation on the programmatic aspects of the management of moderate acute malnutrition in children under five years of age, Geneva (2010)

Date: 24th - 26th February 2010

Venue: Geneva

Convenors: WHO, UNICEF, WFP and UNHCR

Summary

In 2008, WHO’s Departments of Child and Adolescent Health (CAH) and Nutrition for Health and Development (NHD), in collaboration with partners and with support from the IASC Nutrition Cluster, convened a consultation on the dietary management of moderately malnourished children (MM1). The aim of the consultation was to discover what diets should be used for moderately malnourished children (link to Food and Nutrition Bulletin, Volume 30, Number 3, September 2009).

The WHO CAH and NHD, in collaboration with UNICEF, WFP and UNHCR, hosted a second consultation to discuss the programmatic aspects of the management of moderate malnutrition in children under five years of age from 24th to 26th February 2010 (hereon called MM2). The purpose of this meeting was to review the evidence on strategies and programmatic approaches to management of moderate wasting not addressed in MM1 in order to contribute to the process of improving policy guidance and programme implementation in this area.

The general objectives of the meeting were to improve overall policy and evidence-based programme guidance on management of moderate malnutrition, with specific emphasis on children with moderate wasting and to identify knowledge gaps that should be addressed by research both in the area of dietary management and the modalities for providing that diet. Outcomes of the meeting are summarised in the meeting report.
