While community health workers (CHWs) often identify and screen for severe acute malnutrition (SAM), this study looks at incorporating SAM treatment into the work of CHWs. The results from a randomized intervention study in Kita, Southwest Mali, indicated that with minimal training CHWs can treat SAM appropriately, which could result in lower defaulter ratios and improve access to treatment.
