Quality Diets for Better Health – Baseline Report

The Quality Diets for Better Health Project is implemented by CIP, People in Need (PIN) and Rollins School for Public Health at Emory University in Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR) in Ethiopia. The project is financed by the European Union
The report presents the results of 1451 interviews in three districts in the Sidama and Gedeo Zones of SNNPR. The study used a slightly modified version of the monitoring and evaluation tools that were developed under CIP’s SASHA project,
The report provides insights in the local agriculture with emphasis on sweetpotato farming, food security and nutrition status at the start of project implementation. While constructed around the testing of the effectiveness of different interventions through the project’s outcome indicators it provides useful insights in the situation in each district.
