Toolkit to Monitor Bottlenecks to Effective Coverage of Community-Based Management of Severe Acute Malnutrition Services

Year: 2015
Resource type: Field tool

Community-based management of severe acute
malnutrition (SAM) services are currently provided in
more than 60 countries and reach almost 3 million
children with SAM every year. However, SAM services
may reach less than half the number of children suffering
from SAM at the country level.1 Identifying and addressing
the bottlenecks—the obstacles along the service delivery
process that impede effective coverage of services—is
thus critical.
