Paediatric patients with severe acute malnutrition in intensive therapeutic feeding centres are highly sensitive to electrolyte and mineral inputs they receive during treatment. Thus, the composition of therapeutic feeding used in treatment centres are carefully calibrated with respect to electrolyte and mineral content. These products however are usually reconstituted using locally available water, which can have widely varying electrolyte and mineral concentrations. With limited existing research on the topic, the project aimed to better understand the effects of water quality in intensive therapeutic feeding centres and how to manage the issue.
The project successfully:
The final project report provides information on the methodology, activities, outputs, impact and dissemination of learning.
