Double burden of malnutrition in Ghana: a holistic perspective: Evidence Note

The aim of this evidence note is to summarize the current status of nutrition-relevant data in Ghana with relation to the double burden of malnutrition. To achieve this, we examined whether and to what extent national policies focus on the double burden of malnutrition. We highlight strengths, weaknesses, gaps and opportunities in DBM-relevant policy at national level. The broader research question underpinning this analysis was: What is the current political commitment and capacity for interventions that address the DBM within Ghana?
