CMAM Report is a comprehensive monitoring and reporting application with a global online data base that can be used to report on and monitor CMAM programmes with any of the following components: Stabilisation Centre (SC), Outpatient Therapeutic Programme (OTP), Targeted Supplementary Feeding Programme (TSFP), MUAC screening, supplies as well as Blanket Supplementary Feeding Programme (BSFP).

CMAM Report uses standardised reporting categories and indicators that were developed in close consultation with a steering group formed from the wider nutrition community – UN and leading nutrition agencies. If standardised reporting categories and indicators are applied, it makes data fully comparable between programmes as well as countries and agencies.
