The MOYO chart ( named after the nutrition centre in Blantyre, Malawi, where it was developed ) is a low cost job aid to help front line health workers correctly assess acute malnutrition. the chart minimises the misdiagnosis associated with traditional weight-for-height tables by offering a simple step-by step guide to weight for height assessment and distribution.
