This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
- To compare the outcomes of uncomplicated SAM in children under five years old treated through the 'out-patient therapeutic programme (community-based approach)' with those treated with the 'in-patient care at a therapeutic feeding centre' approach in low- and middle-income countries'.
- To compare the effectiveness of both the community-based approach and in-patient care at therapeutic feeding centres in treating uncomplicated SAM in low- and middle-income countries in both humanitarian and non-humanitarian situations
