MALNUTRITION PREVENTION PROGRAM

Muso CHWs provide proactive diagnosis and treatment for children with malnutrition. Every child in the community is regularly assessed for malnutrition, and children who test positive receive treatment and proactive recovery support.

47% of children in the region where Muso’s rural sites operate are malnourished – the highest rate in Mali.

Child malnutrition can have far-reaching effects on child health and development, economic security, and well-being. This is why all of our Community Health Workers provide proactive diagnosis and treatment for children with malnutrition as part of their package of care.
