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://http://www.fantaproject.org/.
