New SHTAC report: Treatment of severe acute malnutrition in young children: a systematic review

Published: 17 May 2012
Treating severe malnutrition

A report on the effectiveness of treating severe acute malnutrition in young children is now available.

The report, funded by the NIHR Health Technology Assessment Programme, comprised a Delphi exercise involving international experts to prioritise research questions to be explored in a systematic review. The systematic review found the evidence for the effectiveness of interventions to treat infants and children aged < 5 years old who have severe acute malnutrition (SAM) to be lacking or inconclusive. Further research is required on most aspects of the management of SAM in children. The report is published in the Health Technology Assessment series.
