Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) market update

UNICEF provides an update on ready-to-use therapeutic food, highlighting supply, demand, and increased supplier diversity in a global context. It highlights UNICEF’s procurement approach through 2020 to meet programme country requirements. Despite an increase in the volumes of RUTF procured, most children suffering from severe acute malnutrition still remain untreated. UNICEF encourages countries to fully integrate community-based management of acute malnutrition into their health care programmes.
