What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the proportion of admitted children who were in the past two months discharged from the treatment program as recovered and became again severely malnourished.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of relapses by the total number of admitted children. Multiply the result by 100. The number equals to the percentage of relapsed children.
Disaggregate the data by gender and age groups.
1) The indicator does not require a separate survey – all data can be gained from the treatment program’s regular records.
