WHO/UNICEF Technical expert advisory group on nutrition monitoring (TEAM)

Online consultation

The World Health Organization (WHO) and The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) are jointly establishing a Technical Expert Advisory Group on Nutrition Monitoring (TEAM).

The TEAM will advise on how to improve the quality of nutrition monitoring efforts at all levels. The group will achieve this through the facilitation of shared learning and the development of harmonized standards, tools and approaches in several relevant sectors such as health, social protection, agriculture.

The TEAM is also expected to identify emerging research questions and needs related to the implementation of monitoring initiatives and to communicate these to appropriate partners. A more specific immediate focus of this group will be to complete the development of the extended set of indicators to monitor the comprehensive implementation plan on maternal, infant and young child nutrition as related to the WHA global nutrition targets.
