Title
Randomized Controlled Trial of the Impact of Offering a Nutrition and Health Intervention to Children Recovered From Moderate Acute Malnutrition
Purpose
Children who recover from moderate acute malnutrition in Malawi remain at high risk for relapse or death in the year following recovery.

These children will be followed for a year following recovery to assess rates of relapse and mortality.
