WHAT DO WE MEAN BY ACUTE MALNUTRITION?
When we use the term acute malnutrition, we refer to the most life threatening form of malnutrition, including both moderate and severe. Other forms of malnutrition, such as chronic malnutrition, micronutrient malnutrition, overnutrition, and underweight, can all take on severe forms. While such forms of malnutrition are also important, this website focuses only on acute malnutrition whilst also including information on other forms of malnutrition in relation to acute malnutrition.
The State of Acute Malnutrition Website is supported by the No Wasted Lives Coalition, an interagency effort between UNICEF, Action Against Hunger, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the European Commission Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), the UK Department for International Development (DFID), and World Food Programme (WFP).
To achieve this, the group developed the No Wasted Lives Agenda, a three-point plan seeking to:
- Make severe acute malnutrition a political and public health priority
- Discover and disseminate learning about a range of more effective ways to prevent and treat severe acute malnutrition
- Mobilise more money and maximise effectiveness of current spending

ABOUT THE DATA
In bringing this information together for the first time we aim to:
- improve the data quality of programmes,
- identify gaps in data,
- and most importantly, enable users to understand the current burden of acute malnutrition as well as treatment coverage at a global and country-specific level.
- UNICEFs ‘Global SAM Management Update Tool (Nutridash)’ data,
- Coverage Monitoring Network,
- The CMAM Forum,
- WHO/UNICEF/World Bank Joint Estimates,
- Global Nutrition Report,
- WHO mortality database,
- WHO Malaria database,
- UNAIDS HIV database as well as Center for Disease Control (CDC) databases.
The website also links with WHO’s Global Database on the Implementation of Nutrition Actions (GINA) and ENNs periodic publications (Field Exchange and Nutrition Exchange). Technical questions are directed to en-net, an established online forum hosted by ENN.
