This guide provides information on anthropometric impact indicators and annual monitoring indicators for maternal and child health/child survival and income-related activities. The guide focuses on the collection and reporting of indicators to improve program management and document program progress. (Note that this guide is being revised to reflect updated indicators, growth standards, and measurement techniques.)
Note that this guide will soon be replaced with our upcoming Guide to Anthropometry: A Practical Tool for Program Planners, Managers, and Implementers which is a user-friendly reference offering up-to-date information on using anthropometry to assess the nutritional status of individuals and communities. Please check back for the new guide to be published September 2017.
