Published on 1 January 2017

This desk-based review forms part of the external impact evaluation of m-Nutrition in Tanzania.

In line with the primary objectives of the impact evaluation (i.e. to assess the impact of m-nutrition on child under nutrition, IYCF and female dietary diversity), the review sets out to identify, review and summarise existing literature on:

  1. Determinants of undernutrition in Tanzania (with a specific focus on determinants of women’s dietary diversity and IYCF); and
  2. The use of mobile phone technology for health in Tanzania (with a specific focus on experiences, lessons learnt and impact of existing m-Health and m-Nutrition interventions).
