Feel free to put your questions in the chat!
Oscar Cordon

Is it possible to know some examples of successful experiences working on RUTF with the private sector?
Abeba Ayele
40:11
Are there studies looking into possibilities of RUTF production using local inputs? If not, should this be a potential research area going forward?
SYLVESTER KATHUMBA
40:26
On Quality of service delivery I would like to learn how special babies are identified at ICCM site for referral to inpatient care!! Do we have weighing scales in the ICCM sites!!? Secondly how effective is the referral system for those Children with complicated SAM?
Daouda Souaré

bonsoir from Guinée !
Bethany Marron
44:16
Apologies if I missed this, but can you share more about why MAM is not part of this review and/or if available documentation/evidence could be used to support program and policy recommendations to include treatment for MAM in integration (or if it did not)? Combined treatment as a simplified approach comes to mind, but did you come across anything else?
Ifeanyi Ume
44:25
While local production of RUTF is desirable, however the cost of locally produced RUTF seems to be higher than imported ones, how can this be addressed?
Daouda Souaré
45:02
merci de nous partager les présentations après la session merci !
Habtamu Fekadu
46:21
Ethiopia, India, Pakistan and Malawi are country examples for local production and working with private sector to produce RUTF
Chawanangwa Jere
46:28
On remuneration/ incentives, can you share examples of what worked in other countries? Even thou it might be country specific
Sita Strother
47:02
Bounjour Daouda. Oui, nous partagerons la présentations après le webinaire et ici sur le site web: https://www.childhealthtaskforce.org/fr/%C3%A9v%C3%A9nements

Could any experiences be shared of how CHWs are reporting CMAM activities especially in areas where education level of CHW is low ?
Khawaja Masuood Ahmed
47:32
With exemption on taxes on import of raw material, cost of local production of RUTF has been reduced in Pakistan. Ministry of Health took the initiative for this exemption
Ifeanyi Ume
47:34
Was there any kind of workload analysis of the integration on CHWs? It will be interesting to know what was found.
Kali Erickson
47:45
Could you speak about the recommended criteria for prevalence of SAM to judge when it's most appropriate and cost-effective to integrate CMAM/iCCM? Especially for a country with low and falling prevalence of SAM.
Habtamu Fekadu
51:25
It is good to hear from countries their experiences in integrating treatment of SAM in iCCM
Casie Tesfai
01:04:04
Given the number of challenges that are stacked up, on the surface, it doesn't seem to me a very compelling case for governments with limited resources to invest in this approach at the national level. It also feels like the same place ICCM was in two decades ago debating whether CHWs could treat pneumonia. I'm wondering in your review, whether you were able to assess how much governments are invested in this strategy? I am concerned with nutrition research and pilots taking place with CHW cadres outside of iCCM. I do think we need to move towards more operational guidance of successful approaches as well as reframing child survival advocacy to include wasting.
Chia-Ying Lin
01:08:36
Hi, Chia-Ying from R4D, we just did a study on access to RUTF, and on private sector partnership, if you're referring to food companies, what we've learned from stakeholder conversation is that food companies have expressed concerns with limited market size, low margins and complexities of the RUTF market as a commercial venture. There may still be potential for technical assistance or capital investments in production capacity via CSR programs.
Bethany Marron
01:09:20
Also building on Casie's comment-- I think Kali's question is a really important /related one that we still don't quite have an answer to. What do govt's want to achieve and how much will it cost vs. strengthening traditional CMAM? is ICCM integration the best approach? what about CMAM surge?
Habtamu Fekadu
01:10:49
I like Casie's question
Casie Tesfai
