Join global experts in severe acute malnutrition (SAM) treatment to learn and discuss the latest research on post-discharge outcomes following initial SAM recovery in CMAM programs. During this webinar, Heather Stobaugh, PhD, and Sarah King, MPH, will present preliminary findings from a large, multi-country study led by ACF in collaboration with several academic partners, that followed over 2,400 children after SAM recovery to quantify relapse rates and identify risk factors of relapse. Join the webinar to hear the findings and discuss whether and when SAM relapse is a problem, what is and is not driving the problem, and how CMAM program design plays a role.
