Screen Shot 2017 09 07 at 12.02.137 September 2017 // Malnutrition is one of the biggest problems the world is facing nowadays and fortifying food with essential nutrients is a cost-efficient way to address this issue. To improve food fortification data availability for the global health and development sectors, the Food Fortification Initiative (FFI), the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), the Iodine Global Network (IGN) and Micronutrient Forum have launched the Global Fortification Data Exchange (GFDx) tool.

In its first release, the GFDx includes indicators on food fortification legislation from 1942 to the present as well as available standards, food availability, and intake for over 230 countries. Coverage data and quality data are planned to be added next. Keep an eye on the updates by signing up here.

The GFDx platform will help to empower governments, donors, implementing agencies and other members of the global health and development community to make data-driven decisions in the planning, resourcing and tracking of food fortification policies and programs. It has been designed to make existing global datasets open, discoverable and understandable. Visit the GFDx website to explore the interactive maps and charts!
