FANTA training guide for CMAM

The Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance (FANTA) Project have released a Training Guide for Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM).
It aims to increase capacity for management of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in children by increasing the knowledge of, and building practical skills to implement, CMAM in both emergency and non-emergency contexts.

The training guide is designed for health care managers and health care providers, who manage, supervise and implement CMAM. This includes health care providers who are involved in health outreach activities, as well as Ministry of Health officials at the national, regional and district levels, health and nutrition programme managers of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and United Nations technical staff.

The training guide was produced in collaboration with Concern Worldwide, Valid International and UNICEF, with technical input and review from USAID, the World Health Organisation and numerous NGOs. Support for the development of the guide was provided by USAID's Bureau for Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance's Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance and Bureau for Global Health's Office of Health, Infectious Disease and Nutrition.

The guide can be downloaded from FANTA-2's website at www.fanta-2.org
