Management of Acute Malnutrition in Infants (MAMI)


MAMI Project Report Jan 2010

A retrospective review of the current field management of moderately and severely malnourished infants under six months of age.

The aim of the MAMI Project was to investigate the management of acutely malnourished infants under six months of age (infants <6m) in emergency programmes, in order to improve practice by contributing to evidence-based, better practice guidelines. It was conducted by the Nutrition in Crisis Research Group and has formed the foundation for ongoing work on improving the diagnosis and mangement of acute malnutrition in this vulnerable age group.
