The Global Nutrition and Policy Consortium is an initiative based at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy which involves collaborating public health and nutrition experts worldwide.

Mission

Our mission is to improve the health of the poorest and most vulnerable populations in the world through improved diet by:

  • Assessing global dietary intakes throughout the lifecourse, with particular focus on children, adolescents, and pregnant/nursing mothers.
  • Understanding how both undernutrition and overnutrition affect health worldwide.
  • Evaluating how dietary policies impact disease and assessing effectiveness of global dietary interventions.
Impact

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.
