Improving global health through diet
The Global Dietary Database (GDD) is an ongoing collaborative effort to produce the most reliable estimates of dietary intake worldwide and inform global health and nutrition research and policy, particularly in poor and vulnerable populations.
Our mission is to improve the health of the most vulnerable populations in the world through improved diet.
Our research will provide innovative and highly relevant findings on dietary intakes, diseases, and policies that will inform priorities for prevention strategies to improve the diets and health outcomes of people around the world.
Poor diet is the leading cause of death and disability in the world.
However, the best methods for improving health through diet remain unclear. Our research focuses on answering three key questions about global diet and its impact on disease.
