A synthesis of lessons: government experiences of scale-up of community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM)

This paper provides a synthesis from lessons of government experiences with scaling up Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) in India, specifically looking at 9 country case studies (Ethiopia, Pakistan, Niger, Somalia, Kenya, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Malawi, and Mozambique).

The topics covered include a review of the political economy frameworks of nutrition governance to understand the CMAM scale-up process, the challenges and enabling factors for CMAM (including implementation and political issues) and an outline of broad lessons drawn from the synthesis that may help guide scale up elsewhere.
