Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance (CHAMPS) has adopted INTERGROWTH-21st standards for their system. CHAMPS is a surveillance project in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia based at the Laney Graduate School, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University in Atlanta, USA focused on characterizing the causes of childhood mortality in high mortality areas. CHAMPS uses on a postmortem procedure called Minimally Invasive Tissue Sampling (MITS), along with clinical, laboratory diagnostic, histopathology, and verbal autopsy data to assign a cause of death using expert panel review. As part of the postmortem procedure, anthropometric measurements are collected: height, weight, MUAC, head circumference; we provide the expert panelists with corresponding z-scores.
