Ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) market outlook
A market update highlighting the product's supply, demand, and increased supplier diversity.
UNICEF procures up to 75-80 per cent of the yearly global demand for funded Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF), which still only covers 23 per cent of the estimated needs for children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Despite an increase in the volumes of RUTF procured, most children suffering from severe acute malnutrition remain untreated. UNICEF encourages countries to fully integrate community-based management of acute malnutrition into their health care programmes.
