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.

Government of Uganda commits to institutionalizing their food fortification program at USAID Advancing Nutrition-organized strategic workshop.
Project staff from around the world attended ICN to disseminate findings from the last five years of research and implementation.
In celebration of its 25th anniversary, this year’s theme for the conference was “Transforming the Global Health Landscape."
