Formative research with regards to the consumption of wheat flour and/or cereal-based products in Khatlon province, Tajikistan

In 2013, USAID and GAIN commissioned a formative research project that would provide detailed, up-to-date knowledge and understanding about household nutrition, food fortification, and related health outcomes in the 12 Feed the Future districts of Khatlon province as well as to provide recommendations for further action and areas for policy improvement based on these results.

This research provides an overview of the knowledge of nutrition, diet and health issues in the home, and community, and the resulting day to day practices of families and school age children living in Khatlon Province, Tajikistan. The research also looks at the business and policy environment for micronutrient fortification of wheat flour, the main staple food in the Tajik diet, and other staple food vehicles.
