Malnutrition eLearning is an interactive, contextualised and media-rich course.

Based on the WHO guidelines for the management of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM), it has been developed to train health professionals in the underlying principles of malnutrition and its management.

The original version was developed by the University of Southampton and the International Malnutrition Task Force in 2010 and launched in 2011 to reduce child deaths by malnutrition. Since its launch to Spring 2018, Malnutrition eLearning had been used by many health professionals and students (>17,000) from over 120 countries.

The technologies used for the course implementation were aging and morden Internet browsers would stop supportimg them from 2019. To continue to offer the course free or charge and to widen its access through mobile devices as well as PCs/laptops and Apple Mac, we have reimplemented the course in 2018. The project team reviewed and revised the course content based on the revised WHO guidelines for the management of SAM prior to the course reimplementation.

With the new Malnutrition eLearning, we hope to continue to support the capacity building of frontline health professionals in the management of SAM and, through this, to contribute to improved care and survival of severly malnourished children globally.

The course is provided by the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton.
