Accurate and reliable data are essential for effective nutrition action. Yet the data available for decision-makers are often limited, making scientific evidence difficult to translate into action through policy and programs. Through a defined process of collaborating, learning, and adapting, USAID Advancing Nutrition helps multi-sectoral nutrition programs increase their impact.
- Applies best practices in nutrition measurement and costing to identify and address data gaps through tailored measurement, evaluation, research, and learning practices
- Generates evidence through design, implementation, and dissemination of information
- Builds global consensus around various aspects of nutrition measurement, including diet quality, hemoglobin concentration, micronutrient measurement and monitoring, and others
