Global database on the Implementation of Nutrition Action (GINA)

On November 28th 2012 the World Health Organization (WHO) launched a Global Database on the Implementation of Nutrition Action (GINA). GINA’s purpose is to:

  • Provide an interactive platform for sharing standardized information on nutrition policies and action, i.e. what are the commitments made and who is doing what, where, when, why and how (including lessons learnt).
  • Link the information on policies and action in countries to data on the nutrition situation in the Nutrition Landscape Information System (see www.who.int/nutrition/nlis) or other indicator databases through interactive maps.
  • Foster communication among stakeholders.
  • Empower countries with important data for their monitoring purposes and accountability towards political commitments.
  • Facilitate the implementation of key evidence-based nutrition interventions/programs and policies, such as those promoted by the Scaling-Up-Nutrition (SUN) movement.
  • Link actions to the WHO guidelines in the electronic Library of Evidence for Nutrition Actions (see www.who.int/elena).
  • Enhance awareness of policies and ongoing actions, for example through the verification process at country and regional level.

GINA contains information collected from various sources, including direct submissions by users. Users can share information on how programmes are implemented, including country adaptations and lessons learnt.
