Authors: Edgar Agaba; Shibani Ghosh; Jeffrey K. Griffiths Publisher: Food and Nutrition Bulletin

The 2011 Uganda Nutrition Action Plan (UNAP) established 2016 maternal and child nutrition targets. However, there is a lack of routine district-level data collection to assess UNAP implementation.  The Nutrition Innovation Lab collected serial household-level survey data (n = 3600) in 6 districts, including 2 UNAP implementation districts, in 2012 and 2014. Questionnaires focused on food security, nutrition, and health, among others, and included specific indicators relevant to UNAP’s targets.
