Replaces

“This study confirms that MUAC can be used for both admitting and discharging criteria in CMAM programs with MUAC < 115 mm for admission and MUAC > = 115 mm or at discharge (a higher discharge threshold could be used).”

2. In Table 1:

  3. 3)

    The legend under the table should be removed.
