Evidence and Discussion


Nutrition and COVID-19 Evidence Tracker

The Nutrition and COVID-19 Evidence Tracker represents the living evidence base which underpins research related to Nutrition and COVID-19. The evidence is organised by thematic area based on a food systems approach which considers the wider determinants of health. As this is a living tracker and an emerging area of research, we urge you to engage in discussion around the evidence tracker via the COVID-19 Discussion Board in 'Evidence and Discussions'. You can view the full tracker here.
