The purpose

MUAC only is a pilot trial external control carried out between January 2017 and December 2017 in the Yako district (northern region), Burkina Faso. The objective of this study is to evaluate an integrated protocol for acute malnourished children without medical complication. The hypotheses of the integrated protocol include : 1. A global treatment of acute malnutrition (moderate and severe) with a single treatment (RUTF) would improve the functioning of the program through early identification of acutely malnourished children, while achieving a better coverage and using a single supply chain. 2. A gradual reduction of RUTF dosage according to a child's MUAC status could significantly increase the number of children on treatment without increasing overall RUTF quantity while maintaining similar recovery rates.
