Meeting Report: Management of Acute Malnutrition in Infants under 6 months (MAMI) Interest Group Meeting

Author: Marie McGrath
Year: 2016
Resource type: Meetings and Workshops

The meeting was co-hosted by ENN, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and Save the Children as part of an ongoing collaboration on management of acute malnutrition in infants under 6 months (MAMI).

The meeting was prompted to facilitate exchange of experiences, policy and research relevant to MAMI, to identify opportunities to engage with reproductive and neonatal health, and to spotlight emerging research priorities in order that partners can mobilise resources to address these moving forward.

Meeting overview/presentations and discussion which CHNRI-linked research questions their work is already linked to/could link to, where appropriate. Three presentation sessions were categorised according to those used in the MAMI CHRNI review – the first morning session covered background/epidemiology and the second session focussed on interventions. Health policy and systems considerations run through both. The third session focused on linking and learning with others. Priority actions and research were identified in group work. 

Full meeting presentations are available on request from ENN; a summary of the presentation content is included in this report.
