Purnima Menon and Lawrence Haddad, senior research fellows at the International Food Policy Research Institute

Nonetheless, having systems that reliably and frequently generate data on a consistent set of indicators across the country will enable greater insights on how to lift the curse of malnutrition” (2/23).
