C-MAMI Tool, Version 1 (2015)

Author: ENN and LSHTM
Year: 2015
Resource type: Field tool

The C-MAMI Tool provides a health worker with a format to assess, identify/classify and manage uncomplicated acute malnutrition in infants < 6 months of age in the community (C-MAMI). The aim of the C-MAMI Tool is to help put the latest WHO technical guidance into practice. It was developed as a first step to help fill a gap in programming guidance.

The tool draws upon and seeks to complement existing national and international guidance and protocols. It is modelled on the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) approach  in particular.

The C-MAMI tool has been developed by the ENN and the LSHTM, with expert input and in consultation with programmers (see acknowledgements within the tool). This tool was developed in an ENN led collaboration funded by OFDA, Irish Aid and Save the Children.

To facilitate feedback, we encourage you to complete a short survey on your experience in appraising or using the tool.  Please contact us if you have opportunities to field test or are interested in collaborating to field test.  A word version, to facilitate adaptation, is available on request. Contact: Marie McGrath, ENN, email: marie@ennonline.net

A user friendly C-MAMI assessment tool has been developed as part of a LSHTM MSc project and is included below, as well as the MSc paper that generated it.
