4. Research Paper on the concordance between estimates of wasting

Evidence has shown poor concordance between population prevalence of wasting measured by weight-for-height and by mid-upper arm circumference, with a higher discrepancy noted as the overall prevalence by weight-for-height increased. Subsequently, classifying the severity of the nutrition crisis based on the prevalence measured by mid-upper arm circumference would correlate poorly with the current weight-for-height-based crisis thresholds.
