What is the CMAM Forum?
The CMAM Forum was established in 2012 by a group of experts with the aim to provide a robust information-sharing mechanism that expands the knowledge base on acute malnutrition. The main aim is:
To support scale-up of quality services for the management of acute malnutrition through the collation of existing technical guidance, evidence and learning from the wider nutrition and health community.
Specific objectives are:
1. Ensuring relevant, up-to-date resources on management of acute malnutrition are accessible to practitioners, policy makers and other key stakeholders based on the needs of users. More...
2. Producing Technical Briefs (current thinking on priority themes), summaries of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and Updates relating to acute malnutrition.
3. Synthesising learning of effective ways to disseminate CMAM-related resources through conducting case studies in selected countries.
4. Promoting and support advocacy efforts on the management of acute malnutrition. More...
- Community outreach for community involvement and early detection, referral of cases of acute malnutrition and follow up of problem cases,
- Management of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) in outpatient care for children 6-59 months without medical complications,
- Management of SAM in inpatient care for children 6-59 months with medical complications and children under 6 months with acute malnutrition,
- Management of Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) for children 6-59 months,
- The comprehensive CMAM model links with maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, food security and livelihood, and other community outreach initiatives.
