113 pp. 1.2 MB

The aim of this study was to review past and current nutrition surveillance systems that involve anthropometric data collection in low-income countries, in order to examine their role in nutrition surveillance. The findings are based on a review of published and unpublished literature, and interviews with key informants. It goes on to assess how those data are used for decision-making and the dissemination of findings in forms that are accessible to different audiences, and describes the problems that may arise with ownership, capacity building and the sustainability of nutrition surveillance systems.
