Description: Community--‐based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM)uses mid--‐upper arm circumference (MUAC) to screen and admit children with non--‐edematous acute malnutrition. A weight gain increase of 15% is recommended as discharge criterion, intended to secure sufficient weight gain. This study examined how use of percentage weight gain as discharge criterion would affect the nutritional status of children admitted into a community--‐based management programme for acute malnutrition in rural southern Ethiopia.
