CMAM Signposting document

This Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) signposting document aims to offer some of the key CMAM-related resources (focusing on humanitarian contexts) as of February 2023. This tool was developed based on a regular technical request posed to the Alliance which has centred on which community management of acute malnutrition (CMAM) related resources and tools, including training tools, are available. While a plethora of resources and tools exist on CMAM, including a wide range of agency-specific tools, with several platforms to share such resources, there remains a need for a consolidated list and repository of resources and tools that country-level practitioners can easily access and use when developing country-specific tools and resources. We recognise that some resources may become outdated once the World Health Organisation (WHO) publishes its updated global guideline for the prevention and management of wasting and nutritional oedema (acute malnutrition). The Global Action Plan on Child Wasting (GAP) agencies, led by UNICEF and WHO are currently in the process of developing a wider resource library for wasting and nutritional oedema (acute malnutrition) which will be housed on the www.childwasting.org website. We thus advise practitioners to visit the www.childwasting.org website for updates on the resource repository and to use the library once it is published.
