ABOUT THE TECHNICAL ACCELERATOR
The Coalition invests in cutting edge ideas to drive forward global learning and action on prevention and treatment of severe acute malnutrition. The work of the Technical Accelerator is focused in three areas:
1) The Council of Research & Technical Advice on Acute Malnutrition (CORTASAM)
CORTASAM was established in 2016 as the first-ever technical panel of independent experts on acute malnutrition, with a view to increasing knowledge and speeding up the time it takes for good ideas to be put into widespread practice.
2) Technical Projects
We directly support a portfolio of operational research to build the evidence around ways to improve the quality, coverage, and cost-effectiveness of programmes for acute malnutrition across the world.
3) The State of Acute Malnutrition: A Platform for Coordination
The State of Acute Malnutrition website displays global and country-level data, and provides a platform for communication and coordination about ongoing research and the use of emerging evidence.
