It is based on nine country case studies (Ethiopia, Pakistan, Niger, Somalia, Kenya, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Malawi, Mozambique), considerations around scale-up from India, and the proceedings of an international conference in Addis Ababa, 14-17 November, 2011 at which the case studies and India experiences were presented and discussed.

From the Editor

This issue of Field Exchange features four field articles about community based therapeutic care of the severely malnourished, a type of programming that is increasingly being rolled out by humanitarian agencies.

The article by Josephine Querubin from ACF-USA is about a home based treatment (HT) programme in Upper Nile and Bahr el Ghazal in southern Sudan, introduced following drought and a large returnee influx. HT was adopted as previous experiences of using the centre based therapeutic feeding model had been poor with high defaulter rates and low coverage.
