Community-Based Therapeutic Care Feasibility Assessment Report
Abstract:
The Community-Based Therapeutic Care (CTC) approach can possibly provide a cost-effective strategy for malnutrition rehabilitation in Nepal. The approach focuses on early identification and treatment through simple medical protocols and Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF),that can be administered at community and household level, rather than in health facilities. Experiences from other countries indicate that 'Higher Treatment Coverage', 'Recovery Rates', and 'Sustainability' can be achieved through the CTC approach. #CTCReport #MalnutritionRehabilitationinNepal #HealthFacilities
