Dec 1, 2022

The FAO/WHO Global Individual Food consumption data Tool (FAO/WHO GIFT) is an innovative, open-access online tool which provides access to quantified data on what people eat and drink developed by the Food and Nutrition Division (ESN) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO). It was created to support better data visualization and utilization and catalyse changes in nutrition. FAO/WHO GIFT’s ultimate goal is to harmonize and disseminate dietary intake data available at national and sub-national level all over the world through an FAO hosted web-platform. This platform, intended for use by both experts and the broader audience, aims to facilitate access to age and sex disaggregated data on individual quantitative food consumption and to provide dietary survey indicators and summary statistics that can trigger targeted policies to improve nutrition worldwide.
