Give this gift to help MSF detect malnutrition and get children on the fast track to health.
In parts of the world where malnutrition is a daily battle, a child's weight is the first step in diagnosing malnutrition and getting them the care they need. Which is why these Salter Scales are an essential tool for treating malnutrition. Lightweight and portable, they’re ideal for use in remote settings where other health care implements are scarce. They can even be suspended from a tree branch or a broom handle held between two people. Widely used at MSF health centres, at feeding centres and during nutritional surveys, babies and young children are placed in a sling or hammock which is then suspended from a hook on the bottom of the scale. 178 million children in the world suffer from malnutrition. Your gift will help MSF doctors provide those children with the care they need to grow healthy and strong.
