Dear all,

It is higlighted that no new CMAM program is needed in this Covid-19 pandemic. Reference: GTAM-Existing CMAM programmes should be supported to continue if possible, however new CMAM programmes are not recommended during an influenza pandemic.

If the country has high MAM prevelence rate (8%) which is found even higher in different Provinces. What will be the response plan? How can we strengthen IMAM program ??

Dear Anon,

A new resource on simplified protocol for acute malnutrition management has been posted in the the simplified approaches area of en-net here. The protocol combines and simplifies standard OTP and TSFP treatment for uncomplicated severe and moderate wasting. 

This might be something to consider in your context.

Best wishes,
