Date: 28th to 30th April, 2008

Venue: Washington D.C.

Convenors: FANTA-2, AED, USAID and The ENN

Summary

The International Workshop on the Integration of Community-Based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM), held between 28th and 30th of April 2008, was the third in a series of workshops on CMAM over the past five years. Due to the growing demand for implementation and integration of CMAM in many countries, the overall goal of this workshop was to “share experiences and identify the main challenges to integration and scale up of CMAM at country level.”

The workshop was successful in providing a clear idea of where and how CMAM is being implemented, as well as in raising a number of issues regarding the scale up of CMAM and its integration with national programmes. Outcomes of the meeting are summarised in the meeting report.
