The Global Diet Quality Project: Measuring What the World Eats

The Global Diet Quality Project: Measuring What the World Eats

Diet — the food people eat — is one of the most important factors in health and wellbeing around the world. Poor diets are related to malnutrition in all its forms and are estimated to be the top behavioral risk factor for deaths. Yet, most countries lack data on what people eat.

In this event, the Global Diet Quality Project unveils the first data collected across 40+ countries and shows what the data reveal about healthy and unhealthy patterns. To date we have released country-adapted diet quality questionnaires (DQQ) for 105 countries, which are a global public good for scaling up valid and feasible diet quality measurement.

Join us on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, live in Washington, D.C. for the launch of our first global report. Take part in discussions with global and national experts from Africa, Asia, and North America about what we learn from the data, and the value of tracking diet quality.

The morning program will highlight global diet quality data, and the afternoon program will highlight diet quality data from the U.S.

Please join us for one program or both programs.
