PROFILES: A Data Based Approach to Nutrition Advocacy and National Development

In Under-nutrition on December 15, 2013 at 9:20 am

 

From Fanta III website

“PROFILES is an evidence-based advocacy tool to support increased political and social commitment to nutrition. PROFILES uses computer models and up-to-date country-specific data to project, over a defined period of time, the consequences that malnutrition will have on national development. It estimates the cost savings that reducing malnutrition will have over that time period in terms of lives improved and saved, and the economic losses averted. Those estimates are then used to engage country governments and other high-level stakeholders in a collaborative process to identity and prioritize actions to reduce malnutrition. Such actions may include developing or refining policies, more effectively implementing existing policies, identifying priority geographic areas in which selected interventions should be focused, and scaling up interventions.”
