The TB Control programme of the Kingdom of Swaziland has been implementing a National TB Control Strategic Plan (TB NSP) covering the period 2010 - 2014. Before it elapsed and to inform the development of a successor plan, the government through the Ministry of Health requested WHO to lead a joint external review of the implementation plan and to assess its impacts on the TB situation in the country. The review was designed to identify successes and best practices to be enhanced and built upon, opportunities to be optimized, gaps to be embraced, and challenges to be addressed.
The purpose of these guidelines is to provide a standardized national model for integrated management of severe and moderate acute malnutrition in children. The individual components of this approach can be implemented at all levels of healthcare in order to target the largest number of malnourished children possible. Individual providers may need to apply these guidelines while adapting them to their individual client's situation and local resource concerns.
