What is the CMAM Forum?
The CMAM Forum was established in 2012 by a group of experts and practitioners with the aim 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 to:
1. Ensure relevant up-to-date resources on management of acute malnutrition are accessible to practitioners, policy makers and other key stakeholders.
2. Produce Technical Briefs (current thinking on priority themes), summaries of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and Updates relating to acute malnutrition.
3. Synthesise learning of effective ways to disseminate CMAM-related resources through conducting specific country case studies.
4. Promote and support advocacy efforts on the management of acute malnutrition.
