Global observatory of trends and inequalities in child health and nutrition

Project summary

Expanding on his experience monitoring inequalities in reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health in low- and middle-income countries, Professor Victora will build up a global data platform on health inequalities to address important scientific questions with direct practical implications for country- and global-level decision makers. He aims to systematically analyse levels and trends in population subgroups, with a focus on maternal and child health and nutrition. Specifically, he will examine the monitoring of child health indicators, interpretation and evaluation of recent trends in health and nutrition, develop forecasting of long-term consequences on child health and nutrition, and investigate how findings can be rapidly and effectively disseminated to promote evidence-based decision-making.
