The MAMI Global Network is an active community of implementers, researchers and policy-makers working together to improve policy, evidence and practice for small and nutritionally at-risk infants under six months (u6m) and their mothers (MAMI).
Small and nutritionally at-risk infants under six months of age are at higher risk of mortality and morbidity compared to their well grown, well-nourished counterparts. At a population level, small and nutritionally at-risk children are those identified as wasted, stunted and underweight and a combination of these. Small babies with a low birth weight contribute to the burden.
Our aim is to assist local, national and international collaborators to work together to improve policy, evidence and practice for small and nutritionally at-risk infants u6m and their mothers. To achieve this, our mission is to build an effective and energetic network to enhance mutual capacity, bridge disciplines, address evidence gaps and champion MAMI care. Membership is open to all who share our vision that every small and nutritionally at-risk infant u6m and their mother is supported to survive and thrive.
The MAMI Global Network is coordinated by the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN), co-led by ENN and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and governed by a Steering Committee. Working Groups, Special Interest Groups, Advisory Groups and Country Chapters work together to contribute to the collective delivery of a shared workplan guided by our five-year strategy (2021–2025).
