About the Project and Team
Motivation and Aims
This project aims to collect dietary quality data in the general adult population across countries worldwide, and to provide the tools for valid and feasible diet quality monitoring within countries. The project enables the collection of consistent, comparable dietary data across countries for the first time.
The Global Diet Quality Project is a collaboration between Gallup, Harvard Department of Global Health and Population, and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN).
