In line with this, GHS has implemented the Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) program to help address acute malnutrition in children under 5. As part of this program, health facilities offering CMAM services must be equipped and well-resourced to ensure early detection of acute malnutrition and linkage to care.
