Mothers Understand And Can do it (MUAC): mother-driven detection of malnutrition in Niger

Empowering mothers to screen their children weekly for signs of malnutrition has many benefits. Malnutrition is detected early before the child's condition becomes too life-threatening and community health workers can be given other priorities, thus allowing an expansion of nutrition care programmes. The European Commission's humanitarian aid and civil protection department funds the NGO partners ALIMA and BEFEN to implement this innovative programme in Mirriah, Niger.
