As of June 1, 2022, the institutional hosting of INDDEX24 will transition from the INDDEX Project at Tufts University to the Intake, Center for Dietary Assessment at FHI Solutions, led by Dr. Megan Deitchler. These last two years of the INDDEX Project have focused on creating the conditions to enable the long-term sustainability of the INDDEX24 Platform. This transition to Intake/FHI Solutions marks the culmination of these efforts. We have collaborated carefully and diligently with Intake’s dedicated team of dietary assessment experts to ensure that the Platform can continue to serve governments and researchers in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) to carry out high quality dietary research. Intake/FHI Solutions will support the Platform under a cost recovery model intended to sustain long-term access to this global good. We are grateful to Intake/FHI Solutions for their commitment to these tools as a means of accelerating diet-related research globally. If you are interested in using INDDEX24 or would like to know more, please direct inquiries to Dr. Megan Deitchler at mdeitchler@FHISolutions.org.
Better Food Consumption Data for Improved Human and Planetary Health
The work of the International Dietary Data Expansion (INDDEX) Project enables the design and implementation of more effective food, nutrition, and agricultural policies and programs that improve the health, well-being, and livelihoods of people worldwide. We have developed the INDDEX24 Dietary Assessment Platform as part of a global architecture for dietary data assessment, which includes innovative technologies, leveraging existing data, strengthening institutions, and demonstrating the policy relevance of improved food consumption data.
INDDEX24 Dietary Assessment Platform
A faster and more streamlined way to conduct individual-level dietary surveys using the multiple-pass 24-hour recall method.
The website used for mobile app management and data monitoring. INDDEX24 Mobile App uses the CommCare HQ survey management to customize select components of the INDDEX24 Mobile App to the survey context and add additional survey modules, as needed, to the project space.
A series of reporting tools that provides simple summary statistics of the dietary survey data and facilitates data processing by highlighting gaps that need to be filled in the dietary reference database.
