Due to the limited evidence of the cost-effectiveness of Community Health Workers (CHW) delivering treatment for severe acute malnutrition (SAM), there is a need to better understand the costs incurred by both implementing institutions and beneficiary households. This study assessed the costs and cost-effectiveness of treatment for cases of SAM without complications delivered by government-employed Lady Health Workers (LHWs) and complemented with non-governmental organisation (NGO) delivered out...

ABSTRACTBackground: Severe acute malnutrition (SAM) is a major global public health concern. Despite the cost-effectiveness of treatment, ministries of health are often unable to commit the required funds which limits service coverage.Objective: A randomised controlled trial was conducted in Sindh Province, Pakistan, to assess whether adding a point of use water treatment to the treatment of SAM without complications improved its cost-effectiveness. Three treatment strategies – chlorine disinfec...

The Malian Nutrition Division of the Ministry of Health and Action Against Hunger tested the feasibility of integrating treatment of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) into the existing Integrated Community Case Management package delivered by community health workers (CHWs). This study assessed costs and cost-effectiveness of CHW-delivered care compared to outpatient facility-based care. Activity-based costing methods were used, and a societal perspective employed to include all relevant costs inc...

An alternative Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition model with community health workers (CHWs) delivering treatment for uncomplicated severe acute malnutrition (SAM) was piloted in Mali. The capacity of the CHWs to evaluate, classify, and treat cases of uncomplicated SAM, to provide nutritional counselling to caretakers of children receiving treatment for SAM, malaria, pneumonia or diarrhoea and to correctly refer cases of complicated SAM, was assessed. This was done using direct obs...

Background Approximately 17 million children under five years suffer from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). Although the most frequent barriers to service access in Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) programmes have already been identified, there has been no analysis of the relationship between gender-related barriers and access to treatment. Approach The main objective is to review the key gender barriers to service access and uptake of treatment in CMAM programmes based on eviden...

The Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) treatment model was introduced to respond to the limited coverage of the inpatient model yet until the introduction of quick and low-cost approaches to measuring coverage, its reach was unknown. Once the Coverage Monitoring Network had been created to introduce the routine measurement of direct coverage estimates to implementers, they found that programmes were reaching only a third of cases. The barriers found to be limiting coverage were th...
