English: % of relapsed children
French: % d'enfants en rechute
Czech: % dětí, jejichž stav se opětovně zhoršil
What is its purpose?
The indicator measures the proportion of admitted children who were in the past two months discharged from the treatment program as recovered and became again severely malnourished.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Divide the number of relapses by the total number of admitted children and multiply the result by 100. The number equals to the percentage of relapsed children.
1) The indicator does not require a separate survey – all data can be gained from the treatment program’s regular records.
2) Disaggregate the data by sex and age groups.
