Malnutrition at critical levels

© UNICEF/NYHQ2011-1108/Holt - A child’s upper arm is measured at a UNICEF-assisted nutrition screening in Longelop Village, Kenya. The measurement, using a mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) armband, is taken to assess a child’s nutrition status. The red section of the armband indicates that he is severely malnourished.
