The MAMI Care Pathway Package (2021, Version 3) is a set of resources and materials that was co-created by members of the MAMI Global Network. Previously known as the C-MAMI Tool, the update was informed by the latest evidence and experiences of putting previous versions into practice. The MAMI Care Pathway Package is intended to help operationalize the 2013 World Health Organization guidelines on the management of severe malnutrition in infants under six months. It provides implementation guidance on how to identify, assess, and support small and nutritionally at-risk infants under six months and their mothers and materials to help practitioners put this into practice. The overall approach and format of the package is modelled on and supports the implementation of Integrated Management of Childhood  Illnesses (IMCI).

If you have implementation questions, post them on the MAMI area of the online forum, en-net. Please share your experiences using the MAMI Care Pathway Package by filling in this brief feedback form. We’ll use your feedback to shape future versions of the MAMI Care Pathway Package. For any other information contact the MAMI Global Network Coordinator at mami@ennonline.net

For more details on the contents of the package, watch this video on the MAMI Global Network Youtube channel.

Version 2 was piloted in Bangladesh (Save the Children), Ethiopia (GOAL) and Rwanda (Partners in Health) and these experiences have informed the 2021 update. The following articles and papers describe these experiences:
