The State of Global SAM Management Coverage - 2012

"The State of Global SAM Management Coverage 2012” , an annex to the Global Global SAM Management Update, Update, was produced jointly by UNICEF, ACF-UK and the Coverage Monitoring Network. The annex was designed to encourage further debate, discussion and research by reviewing the availability, accessibility and coverage of SAM management worldwide and providing a brief summary of opportunities and challenges ahead. The data was drawn from both UNICEF’s indirect national coverage data collection initiative, and the Coverage Monitoring Network’s national and sub-national direct coverage data collection work. The need to strengthen routine SAM management data as well as refine current coverage definitions and ultimately improve estimates of treatment coverage are some of the key findings of this report.
