This study covers issues requiring a consideration in strengthening efforts to improve availability and use of data generated through the POSHAN Abhiyaan, India’s National Nutrition Mission. It examines the availability of data across a range of initiatives under the POSHAN Abhiyaan framework, including population-based surveys and administrative data systems. To improve monitoring and data usage, this document focuses on three questions: what type of indicators should be used; what type of data sources can be used; and with what frequency should progress on different indicator domains be assessed. The paper provides guidance for national, state, and district-level government officials and stakeholders for using data to track progress on nutrition interventions, immediate and underlying determinants, and outcomes.
