PMA2020 nutrition surveys were designed to provide government and development partners with more complete national-level data on the coverage of nutrition-specific interventions, diet and nutritional status among children under 5, adolescent girls, and women of reproductive age, as well as household-level food security and access to fortified foods. The surveys also included an assessment of the readiness of public and private facilities to provide nutrition services. Two rounds of the survey were carried out in both Kenya and Burkina Faso.
