WHO Member States endorsed six global nutrition targets for improving maternal, infant and young child nutrition in 2012.

The translation of the global targets into national ones needs to consider nutrition profiles, risk factor trends, demographic changes, experience with developing and implementing nutrition policies, and health system development.

WHO, in collaboration with UNICEF and the EC, developed the Tracking Tool to help countries set their national targets and monitor progress.This tool allows users to explore scenarios taking into account different rates of progress for the six targets and the time left to 2025.

The tool's default language setting is English and soon will be available also in French, Russian and Spanish.

The tool has three modules:

  • 1) Country indicator profiles
  • 2) Indicator mapping
  • 3) Global and regional overviews

Tracking Tool to help countries set their national targets and monitor progress. This tool allows users to explore scenarios taking into account different rates of progress for the six targets and the time left to 2025. View introduction to the tool here.

The tool’s underlying data will be updated as new estimates of the target indicators become available.

Outputs from the Tracking Tool will feed into the Global Monitoring Framework for Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition, the Global Nutrition Report, and reports from other global initiatives like the SUN Movement and the UN Secretary-General’s Zero Hunger Challenge.

The tool complements existing tools on nutrition interventions, impact and costing (see links under related tools).
