Management of small & nutritionally at-risk infants under six months & their mothers (MAMI)

The MAMI vision is that every small and nutritionally at-risk infant under six months and their mother is supported to survive and thrive.

Small and nutritionally at-risk infants under six months of age are at higher risk of death, malnutrition and poor development compared to their well-grown counterparts. These infants are identified as wasted (21.3% globally), stunted (17.6%), underweight (20.1%) and low birth weight (11%), and a combination of these.

MAMI supports infant and maternal nutrition, health and maternal mental health to reduce the risk of adverse outcomes among these infants under six months of age. Building on existing systems and services and strengthening the links between these services is the priority. For more on MAMI, see this summary

MAMI Global Network

The MAMI Global Network are a group of established and early career programmers, researchers and policymakers from across the globe. We are working towards realising the MAMI vision.  

Our vision is that local, national, and international collaborators work together to improve policy, programmes and practice for small and nutritionally at-risk infants under six months and their mothers (MAMI).
 
Our mission is to build an effective and energetic network to enhance mutual capacity, bridge disciplines, address evidence gaps and champion MAMI care.

The MAMI Global Network is coordinated by ENN and co-led by ENN and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). Find out more about the Network’s governance and coordination, including the steering committee and five-year strategy.

The MAMI Global Network does not directly implement programmes but supports three broad areas of work: Evidence, Policy and Practice. We are focused on getting research (evidence) into policy AND practice. Find out more about the history of the Network from one of its founders Marie McGrath here.
