Hi colleagues, I am looking for the latest guidelines for CMAM so I can use it in an area which has no CMAM protocol, specially for physicians who has no idea about malnutrition management (OTP, SFP and IPF). many thanks in advance.

Hi, if there is no national guidelines in the country where you work, I would advise you to refer to the guidelines found in FANTA III http://

I see in studies and even on the WHO website that the adolescent age group included is between 10 and 17 years old. However, WHO defines adolescence as the period from 10 to 19 years of age. Could you enlighten me on this point? Thank you
