This report is written for audiences who implement nutrition-focused household surveys. It describes the development, application and refinement of new questions to measure coverage of key nutrition interventions and practices: breastfeeding counseling and support, complementary feeding counseling, micronutrient supplements, and consumption of “unhealthy” foods by children, adolescent girls, and women. The PMA2020 team aimed to develop questions that can be generalized within and across country contexts. No globally accepted standardized coverage indicator definitions were available for these interventions and practices. However, there are examples of questions from research and program evaluation contexts that informed the PMA2020 questionnaire.
