Development of methods to measure the coverage of biofortified foods – Rwanda pilot study

Project Ongoing

 
In collaboration with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Sagaci Research, and the University of Rwanda, GroundWork is developing and testing methods for assessing the coverage and intake of biofortified foods. This includes development of data collection tools for market vendor interview, focus group discussions, and household-based interviews. These tools have been tested and refined in Rwanda’s Musanze district where both high-iron beans and orange-fleshed sweet potatoes have been marketed. With input from GAIN, HarvestPlus, and the International Potato Center (CIP), GroundWork is leading the development of the tools, management of the field work, data analysis, and reporting.
