Nutrition

We lead and participate in a number of studies that document key nutritional determinants of both maternal and child health and chronic diseases, and their worldwide health effects. Our emphasis is on data and analyses that can inform priority setting and policy design both for specific foods and nutrients, and for cross-cutting patterns of diet and nutrition.
