The MAMI Care Pathway Package is a programming aid whose contents are based on and are intended to help operationalize World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines for the management of infants u6m with severe acute malnutrition (2013). The overall approach and format of the tool is modelled on and supports the implementation of Integrated Management of Childhood  Illnesses (IMCI). It was developed through peer review consultation in 2015, updated in 2018 and is now being used by programmers.

Note: An orientation webinar on the MAMI Care Pathway Package (v3) will be held in June, details to follow. If you have programming questions, post them on the MAMI area of the online forum, en-net. For any other information and to share feedback, contact: Kelsey Grey, MAMI Global Network Coordinator, mami@ennonline.net
