Description


ZANE Study (Estudo do Estado Nutricional e da Dieta em Raparigas Adolescentes na Zambézia) focuses on the nutrition of adolescent girls in Zambezia Province, central Mozambique. Our partners include the Food Security and Nutrition Association (ANSA), the Technical Secretariat for Food Security and Nutrition (SETSAN), the Department of Nutrition in the Ministry of Health, Mozambique and the Provincial Health Directorate of Zambezia Province. The project is led by Professor Marja Mutanen.

Our aim is to study the food consumption, dietary intake and nutritional status among 15 to 18-year-old adolescent girls living in Zambezia Province. Data was collected in 2010 during two seasons, January-February (hungry season) and May-June (harvest season). Dietary intake was assessed by the 24-hour recall method and the nutritional status through anthropometry and a variety of biochemical measurements. One of the objectives of the study is to explore the differences in the diet and nutritional status among girls living in urban and rural areas.
