Abstract

Correctly identifying malnourished or at-risk children is the critical first step towards appropriate nutritional interventions. To improve weight-for-height assessment and classification of nutritional status, we present a novel, low-cost, weight-for-height slide chart. We also describe a target weight system for monitoring children's progress towards nutritional recovery.
