Global Diet Quality Score (GDQS) Launch Event
This remote launch event will include a series of presentations to describe final results of work to develop and validate the Global Diet Quality Score (GDQS), a new metric of diet quality appropriate for use in low- and middle-income countries. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about a GDQS-focused supplement submitted to the Journal of Nutrition and to preview the technology assisted data collection system that has been developed for collecting GDQS data in population-based surveys.
The GDQS research initiative was launched by Intake – Center for Dietary Assessment. The research was led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Department of Nutrition and carried out in collaboration with researchers at the National Public Health Institute (INSP), Mexico. Funding for the research was provided by FHI Solutions, recipient of a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant to support Intake – Center for Dietary Assessment.
