USAID’s Framework for assessing the interaction between Covid-19 and nutritional health
I’m getting caught up on reports this week. Here’s one from the US Agency for International Development: COVID-19 and Nutrition Analytical Framework
The purpose of the Framework:
- Allow policymakers and implementers to better track the interaction of the COVID-19 pandemic and nutrition
- Provide a tool for planning policies, programs, and interventions
- Help identify data gaps
- Support a systems approach to addressing problems “caused, increased, or intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic”
What I like about this Framework is how it so clearly identifies the upstream system levels of intervention: food, health, social, education, and infrastructure.
It’s also interactive, but for that you have to go to its source and click on each section.
