Dear forum members,

I am a Paediatric Nurse soon to be involved in a project between a UK Children's Trust and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Blantyre that has a large children's unit. I am currently trying to scope and establish an understanding of existing CMAM programmes in Southern Malawi that refer directly to the Queen Elizabeth children's' hospital in Blantyre (or not), and children's discharge process into the community. Areas such as, Zomba, Machinga, Mwanza, Phalombe, Chikwawa etc. Also, if anybody who has experience of working with or alongside the QE.

Any ideas welcome,
Grateful thanks.

You should reach out to Dr Mark Manary who has worked in Southern Malawi for over a decade. Project Peanut Butter produces RUTF locally (in Blantyre) and St Louis Nutrition Program implements CMAM in about 20 clinics.
