Accurate and reliable data are essential for effective nutrition action. Yet the data available to 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, anemia assessment, micronutrient measurement and monitoring, among others.
