This includes Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition and Nutrition in HIV/AIDS. Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition (IMAM) is an approach that addresses acute malnutrition and focuses on the integration of the management of acute malnutrition into the on-going routine health services at all levels.
The Community services involve early identification, referral, and follow-up of the acutely malnourished at the community level. SFP manages and treats MAM in children of 6-59 months and other vulnerable groups that include pregnant women, lactating women with infants less than 6 months, those with special needs such as the elderly. OTC provides home-based management and rehabilitation of SAM patients as well as MAM patients with HIV/TB who have an appetite and no medical complications. ITC is for the management of SAM with medical complications.
Nutrition in HIV/AIDS: Deals with patients of chronic diseases, including HIV and tuberculosis (TB). Ministry of Health and development partners have provided targeted nutrition interventions to districts and health facilities using the Nutrition Assessment, Counselling and Support (NACS) approach in services for people living with such people.
