Educators calculate MUAC to identify children with Severe and Moderate Acute Malnutrition, offering support & counseling.
RMF implemented CommCare to assist Community Nutrition Educators (CNEs) in identifying children with Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) and Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) through measuring MUAC. In addition to tracking MUAC over time, the application supports counseling to families of malnourished children and refers these children to government treatment facilities for rehabilitation in villages of Madhya Pradesh. Their work was previously recorded in paper format and implementation of mobile data collection has reduced the latency period from 45 days to eight hours.
