Emily Mates


Emily Mates has worked for the last 13 years in international public health and nutrition programming mostly in Africa. She has a MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and has broad-ranging experience of health service delivery and systems; including nutrition, health care management and community programming initiatives. She has been extensively involved with the Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) approach since the first pilot in Ethiopia in 2000 and its subsequent transition from small INGO programmes to national level scale-up and integration into routine health services.

 For the last 3 years, Emily has been doing consultancy work for different partners; INGOs, Donors and the UN. She has a particular interest in bridging the (sometimes artificially divided) sectors of nutrition and health, and in supporting governments to develop strategies and policies for longer-term solutions to the problems of undernutrition.
