MAMI Care Pathway Package: from vision to action

By ENN on 9 July 2021

Tackling malnutrition is a global health priority, helping children both survive and thrive. A large proportion of infants under six months of age in the world are identified as malnourished (wasted, stunted and/or underweight) and are at increased risk of death, disease, and poor development. Challenges faced by frontline practitioners in supporting small and nutritionally at risk infants under six months and their mothers prompted the MAMI Global Network to develop the MAMI Care Pathway Package (formerly the C-MAMI Tool) to fill this urgent gap. 

Modelled on an integrated care pathway approach and Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI), it provides implementation guidance and resources for adaptation, integration, and linkages across existing neonatal, health and nutrition systems and services. 

ENN held an orientation webinar on 2nd July 2021 to share information about the package, ask questions, and explore how best we can put our vision of MAMI care into action.
