This paper will be of interest to those who would like to know more about Concern’s role in the evolution of managing severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and more about our current community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM) programming.
Concern has learnt that CMAM is a cost-effective health intervention that, when successfully integrated into health and community systems, can achieve significant scale and impact. As with the implementation of all essential child health services, there are many challenges to overcome and simplicity is often key, but if we are to facilitate access to treatment for all those children with SAM then the work will be worth the effort.
This report is also linked to a report of the key lessons learned in 15 years of CMAM programming.
