Capacity building in dietary monitoring and public health nutrition in the Eastern Mediterranean Region Countries

Lead Research Organisation: Quadram Institute Bioscience

Abstract

In common with many Western countries, the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) has a major problem with obesity and the associated public health issues. The World Health Organization (WHO) has been developing new health policies to lower intakes of sugar, saturated fats, trans fats and salt with the aim of reducing the risk of non-communicable diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity) in children and adults. To implement these policies successfully it is
essential to have high quality food composition and food intake data to underpin research into the links between diet and health and to enable effective dietary monitoring and policy development. Most EMR countries use international food composition tables that include foods consumed in western diets with different nutrient composition, especially for mixed and traditional dishes. Some of these data from other countries are outdated and do not reflect the composition of foods currently consumed in EMR countries, meaning that calculated nutrient intakes are inaccurate. Methods of measuring
dietary intake also need to be up-to-date and use appropriate food information.
This project intends to provide technical and scientific support for researchers (mainly food and nutrition experts) in LMIC countries in the EMR, and will also provide training in the use of improved standardized methods for production and management of food composition and food intake data and also identify appropriate biological markers of food nutritional
value and measurements of health outcomes. A review will be undertaken of food and nutrient intakes in the LMICs to develop strategies for reducing sugary and fatty foods in these diets based on new WHO guidelines.
The Quadram Bioscience Institute, that aims to develop solutions to worldwide challenges in human health, food and infectious disease and non communicable disease, will lead the project in partnership with the WHO EMR office. The latter will help to coordinate and co-align regional activities to ensure public health priorities are targeted effectively. Three main activities will underpin capacity building in the EMR with a focus on 10 target LMICs (Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan,
Palestine, Sudan, Lebanon, Pakistan, Iran & Afghanistan). The project will build on existing links with the WHO EMR and will develop and extend activities with LMIC in the EMR. Four main activities are planned: (1) Training and knowledge exchange workshops; (2) Short-term exchanges of researchers; (3) Development and application of harmonised protocols for pilot sample collection, food analysis, data generation and creation of online regional food composition datasets; (4)
Development of possible dietary and other strategies to support reduction in intake of sugary and fatty foods.
The main outcomes will be to build capacity and practical skills in the LMIC to improve production, management and use of food composition and dietary intake data, and biomarkers. Knowledge of European and International standards will be disseminated, with support from WHO, to experts across the region. Networks of expertise within the region will also be an
important outcome leading to increased collaboration and effective data sharing. The project will enable more efficient use of better quality, region specific, food composition and intake data that can be used for research, monitoring and policy development. This will benefit LMICs in the region by providing data and tools that can encourage reduction of sugar, saturated fat, trans fats and salt and thereby reduce the incidence of diet related disease.

Technical Summary

High quality food composition and food intake data are essential to underpin research into the links between diet and health and to enable effective dietary monitoring and policy development. Most Eastern Mediterranean Region countries use international food composition tables that include foods consumed in western diets with different nutrient composition.
Some of these data from other countries are outdated and do not reflect the composition of foods currently consumed in EMR countries, meaning that calculated nutrient intakes are inaccurate. Methods of measuring dietary intake also need to be up-to-date and use appropriate food information.
This project will provide technical and scientific support for researchers (mainly food and nutrition experts) in LMIC countries in the EMR. The project will provide training in the use of improved standardized methods for production and management of food composition and food intake data and also identify appropriate biological markers of food nutritional value and measurements of health outcomes.
Training workshops and exchanges between EMR, UK and possibly European experts will review status and support development of regional food composition databases using European and International Standards. Dietary monitoring methods and use of biomarkers for intake validation, and public health nutrition will also be reviewed for use in LMIC.
Existing data and current plans for producing data will be reviewed and harmonized sampling and analysis protocols produced. A network of expertise aimed at ensuring sustainability and producing a regional database will be established.
The project will enable more efficient use of better quality, region specific, food composition and intake data for research, monitoring and policy development. This will benefit LMICs by providing data and tools that can encourage reduction of sugar, saturated fat, trans fats and salt and thereby reduce the incidence of diet related disease.

PI Contribution In partnership with other leading organisations, the Quadram Institute has organised a workshop to help researchers from across Africa exploit food composition data, improving local nutrition policies and public health advice. The workshop, which is being hosted by the new confirmed African Research University Alliance (ARUA) Centre of Excellence in Food Security at the University of Pretoria, is bringing together scientists, nutritionists and policy-makers from 11 African countries to share best practice in generating reliable, standardised data on the composition of foods, and set up networks to share data online. These data, and the tools to access and exploit it, underpin the development and implementation of local food and nutrition policies, regulatory measures, labelling and health advice. The Quadram Institute (UK), Wageningen University (NL), the University of Pretoria (ZA) and EuroFIR AISBL (BE) are contributing to this event, which was funded through the Research Councils United Kingdom (RCUK) Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF); this aims to ensure that UK research takes a leading role in addressing the problems faced by developing countries. Over the course of the five-day workshop, participants will receive expert training in designing sampling protocols, calculating nutrient values, assessing data quality, and using appropriate tools for data compilation, management and data sharing. Through working closely with regional networks, including the FAO International Network of Food Data Systems' AFROFOODS network, outcomes from the workshop will benefit not just the participants, but also the wider community of public health researchers who rely on these data. These networks will also provide a conduit for further future training and capacity building, by hosting online information resources and e-learning, and facilitating scientist exchanges. "We hope that this workshop will help to build local capacity in food composition data management, that will benefit countries across Africa" said Paul Finglas, head of the Quadram Institute Food Databanks National Capability and Managing Director of EuroFIR. "By giving researchers the knowledge and tools to generate data that matches shared standards, we can get more up-to-date data online and searchable so that it can provide a sound basis for nutrition and public health advice." According to the 2017 Global Nutrition Report, nutrition programmes has a $16 return of investment. "Towards attaining the 169 Targets of the 17 Global Goals Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) approved by each of our governments" stated Hettie Schönfeldt, director of the new ARUA CoE for Food Security led by the University of Pretoria, South Africa in collaboration with the University of Ghana, Legon and the University of Nairobi "targeted approaches to facilitate agricultural and food system transformation are as essential as partnerships in research and innovation in order to attain sustainable food security and nutrition in Future Africa and elsewhere".
