This report describes the research undertaken in 2016 to map nutrition related information systems in 57 SUN countries.
Improving gender equality and nutrition data for women, children, and adolescent girls
2019 - 2020
In collaboration with the University of Toronto and the Campbell Collaboration/University of Ottawa, Nutrition International develops gender- and equality-related nutrition indicators to ensure the quality of our programs.
Gender equality and improved nutrition
Good nutrition and gender equality are mutually reinforcing. Improved nutrition is critical to achieving gender equality, and in turn, improving gender equality leads to improved nutrition. A framework is needed for monitoring these links.
Closing the data gap on gender and nutrition
This collaboration adapts and uses Nutrition International’s existing Nutrition Intervention Monitoring System (NIMS) toolkits, survey data, and global surveys to:
The NIMS toolkit harmonizes Nutrition International’s data collection system for reporting program value-add through standardized survey tools and quality metrics to derive quality data for impact modeling using Nutrition International’s OMNI tool.
However, NIMS did not yet include gender- and equality-sensitive indicators and harmonized and quality assured methods for collecting routine monitoring data for rapid course correction.
This grant from Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health responds to this gap.
Improving the quality of our programs
This collaboration will allow us to better assess gender and equality aspects of our program, develop gender- and equality-related nutrition indicators, create standardized and quality assured methods for routine monitoring and make the NIMS survey toolkit available online.
