In bringing this information together for the first time we aim to:
improve the quality of services,
and most importantly, enable people to understand the current burden of acute malnutrition as well as treatment coverage at a global and country-specific level.
We understand that improving quality is an iterative process, so contribute to the ongoing quality improvements and discussions on gaps, please submit questions here.
