Government of Sudan CMAM Training Course on Inpatient Management of Severe Acute Malnutrition: Training Materials (2011)

In 1999, the World Health Organisation (WHO) published the Management of severe malnutrition: A manual for physicians and other senior health workers and in 2002 the Training course on the management of severe malnutrition. FANTA-2, in collaboration with national partners in Sudan, adapted and built on the WHO documents, the 2009 Government of Sudan Community-Based Management of Severe Acute Malnutrition manual, and other materials to develop training materials for inpatient management of SAM designed for physicians, nurses, and nutritionists in hospitals in Sudan. While the training course focuses on inpatient care, the training materials are compatible with the Community-Based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) approach and the Sudan context.
Course materials include a set of training modules, three training guides, a set of job aids, forms, and checklists, a book of photographs and several videos used in the training, related slide presentations and several documents to help with planning and additional reading. All files can be downloaded from: http://www.fantaproject.org/publications/sudan_CMAM_IC_2011.shtml.

Support for development of the training materials was provided by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance, Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance, and the Bureau for Global Health, Office of Health, Infectious Diseases, and Nutrition.
