Summary: 

To test for moderate acute malnutrition, the mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) is measured. A MUAC between 11 and 12.5 cm indicates moderate acute malnutrition. With WFP support, this clinic in Mauritania provides special nutritious food to 83 moderately acute malnourished children and 23 nursing mothers.
