My research aims to follow up children discharged from hospital following management of severe acute malnutrition to determine their clinical and nutritional outcomes and what factors at discharge predict long-term morbidity, mortality and nutritional relapse. The aim of this work is to help identify children at risk and provide targeted interventions to improve their long-term outcomes. Determination of body composition will also provide data on the predeterminants of subsequent adult metabolic disease.
