Traduction en anglais : Conceptual framework for nutrition surveillance systems.
This article describes the evolution of nutrition surveillance as an intervention strategy and presents a framework for improving the usefulness of nutrition surveillance programs.
It seems clear that such programs' impact on nutritional well-being will depend increasingly on their ability to reach and influence decision-makers.
There-fore, it is important to consider political and social forces, and also to realize that if a program is too decentralized or too far removed from key decision-makers, its ability to influence resource flows may be limited.
It is of course important that the surveillance information provided be appropriate and of good quality.
Therefore, the data collected should be analyzed to ensure they are accurate and representative.
