On November 18, 2015 the Agency for Statistics under the President of the Republic of Tajikistan held a round table.

The Agency for Statistics under the President of the Republic of Tajikistan with the participation of representatives of the Food and Agriculture Programme (FAO), ministries and agencies and other international organizations held a round table, where were presented on the integration module of results of a pilot study dietary diversity among women of childbearing age (15 - 49 years) in the household budget survey in the period 2014 - 2015.

Director of the Agency Hasanzoda G.K. expressed its appreciation to the Food and Agriculture Programme (FAO) for the provision of technical assistance to improve the capacity of 50 employees AS on the implementation of simple tools for monitoring and collecting information about the diversity of the diet of women, setting targets and propaganda as well as for the implementation of pilot studies on the integration of MCI module HBS-F and assessing diets of women of childbearing age in the five regions of the country.

Experts from the Food and Agriculture Programme (FAO) presented the results of a pilot survey using the module MCI-F as an important part of the evaluation of the quality of food. Demands for a proxy indicator to assess women’s dietary quality have been intensified due to an increased focus on improving maternal and child health during the critical 1,000-day period. An indicator to support such efforts includes the MDD-W indicator that reflects women’s consumption of ≥5 of 10 food groups throughout the previous day and night. This is because higher dietary diversity in women is associated with higher micronutrient adequacy and that women are less likely to have micronutrient deficiency.

The results showed that in the regions of the country varied differentiation of minimum power. VMKB and Khatlon regions experienced minimal lower average consumption among women of childbearing age, respectively, 5.9 and 6.0 groups in other regions was relatively higher: RRS - 6.5, in the Sughd region and in Dushanbe 7.0 -7.4.

Experts and representatives of ministries and departments, it was recommended that data collection should be carried during other periods, because the results of the consumption of various foods may differ depending on the season.
