8. Community Therapeutic Care ProgramsCTC is a community-based approach of care for managing large numbers of acutely malnourished people. The CTC approach treats the majority of the severely malnourished at home and uses outreach teams to promote community participation and behavioral change. CTC aims to build community capacity to manage and better respond to repeated cycles of relief and recovery. Providing appropriate therapeutic foods containing the right mix of nutrients is central to the home-based care of the severely malnourished. Ready-to-use therapeutic foods (RUTF) have been specially designed for the treatment of severe acute malnutrition. RUTF can also be manufactured locally, thereby increasing availability and reducing costs.
