The Global database on the Implementation of Nutrition Action (GINA) is an interactive platform for sharing standardized information on nutrition policies and actions, i.e. what are the commitments made and who is doing what, where, when, why and how (including lessons learnt)…. More about GINA

The WHO Regional views filter at the bottom of this page helps to view the data in GINA for a specific WHO region.

As internet browsers for GINA we recommend: Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer 9.

Work in progress and future developments

We are currently implementing a reorganisation of policy and action topics in the GINA database. The purpose is to improve alignment with global targets and monitoring frameworks for nutrition and diet-related NCDs.
