MAMI Care Pathway Package, Version 3 (2021)
Author: MAMI Global Network, ENN, LSHTM
Resource type: Field tool
|Dossier disponible en français|
The MAMI Care Pathway Package provides practitioners with a resource to screen, assess, and manage small and nutritionally at risk infants under six months and their mothers (MAMI).
The aim of the MAMI Care Pathway Package is to help put the latest WHO technical guidance into practice. It was developed as a first step to help fill a gap in programming guidance. The MAMI Care Pathway draws upon and complements existing national and international guidance and protocols. It is modelled on the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) approach.
Version 1.0 of the C-MAMI Tool was produced in 2015 and updated to Version 2.0 in 2018. Version 3 is now available. It has been updated from the 2018 version through stakeholder consultation, literature reviews, and based on learnings of previous implementation experiences.
Development of the MAMI Care Pathway Package was funded by the Eleanor Crook Foundation, Irish Aid and the Waterloo Foundation.
