WHO's Severe acute malnutrition with medical complications kit (SAM/MC) kit is a standard kit designed to provide medical treatment for 50 children under five suffering from severe malnutrition with medical complications. The SAM/MC kit includes antibiotics, antifungal, de-worming, antimalarial and anti-scabies medicines, and a rehydration mix specific to treat cases of severe acute malnutrition. This prepacked kit is designed for use where there is disruption of medical supplies in emergency settings as a way to fill a gap until the medical supply mechanisms are restored.
