Determining body mass index (BMI) is an inexpensive, reliable way for health workers to identify malnutrition in children over 5 years of age, adolescents, and non-pregnant, non-lactating adults. In 2014, FANTA and the Boston Children’s Hospital created the BMI wheel for health care workers in developing countries to quickly calculate BMI and BMI-for-age as well as determine a client’s nutritional status using a single time-saving tool.
How to Print the BMI Wheel
The design files for the BMI wheel are available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese for organizations interested in printing the wheel for their own use.
Access to the files is given through a sublicense agreement with FHI 360 that provides the non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free right to use, make, copy, reproduce, publish, display, distribute, transmit, and translate the BMI wheel. Interested organizations should send an email request with their name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FHI 360 will then provide the design files that can be used by a professional printer to print and assemble the wheels. To ensure accuracy of the wheel, as per the sublicense, the design files cannot be modified other than for translation.
