USAID Advancing Nutrition is collaborating with the Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre (TFNC) on research related to dietary intake and nutrition to understand dietary patterns among women to inform policy and programs to improve nutrition.
USAID Advancing Nutrition and the TFNC developed a protocol for a food intake survey in the Mbeya region, Tanzania, among a representative sample of non-pregnant, non-lactating women of reproductive age, along with dietary recall data collection tools. TFNC completed data collection in August 2022. USAID Advancing Nutrition is collaborating with the TFNC to analyze data and interpret the findings. We will publish more on the work soon.
