Integrated Management of Newborn and Childhood Illness Module: 8. Treatment of a Child with Malnutrition and Anaemia

Study Session 8.  Treatment of a Child with Malnutrition and Anaemia


In the previous study session you learned how to assess and classify a sick child suffering from malnutrition and anaemia. This session is more practice focused and equips you with knowledge and skills that build on what you learned from Study Session 7, so that you will be able to treat and manage severe uncomplicated malnutrition and anaemia. In addition, you will be taught when and how to refer a sick child with uncomplicated malnutrition or anaemia for hospital treatment, and how to give advice to parents/carers of a sick child with one of these conditions.
