N4G Summit Side Event: Tools for monitoring diet quality across countries
Dec 9, 2021
4:00-5:30pm CET (Rome time)
Sponsor: EC - BMZ
Co-hosts: FAO, USAID, The Rockefeller Foundation, GIZ, SDC
Simultaneous interpretation: Spanish, French, Russian

Event Description:
The measurement of diet quality is essential to provide information for improving diet quality globally, and to monitor progress toward that goal. Poor diet quality is a major factor in all forms of malnutrition.

This event is the official launch of a set of over 100 country-adapted diet quality questionnaires (DQ-Q) that enable diet quality monitoring by countries and programmes. Each country-specific DQ-Q is fully adapted and ready to implement. The DQ-Q takes five minutes to implement and requires no specialized training, greatly reducing barriers to the collection of diet quality data in national surveys. The DQ-Q is used to derive several indicators of diet quality related to malnutrition in all its forms, including the minimum dietary diversity for women (MDD-W) and dietary risk factors for NCDs.
