Abstract:
Overall objective: To determine the effectiveness of 14 days supplementation with Ready to use therapeutic Food (RUTF) or micronutrients alone concurrently with treatment for diarrhoea, malaria or lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) in reducing risk of malnutrition and disease. 1. Primary aim: Effectiveness of supplementation with RUTF concurrently with treatment for diarrhoea, malaria or LRTI in reducing incidence of malnutrition 2. Secondary aims: a. Effectiveness of supplementation with a multi-micronutrient powder (MNP) concurrently with treatment for diarrhoea, malaria or LRTI in reducing incidence of malnutrition b. Effectiveness of supplementation with RUTF or MNP on reduction of frequency of diarrhoea, malaria or LRTI c. Explore effectiveness of the supplements in reducing malnutrition and illness for moderate malnourished, young children and breastfed children
