Addressing the resulting burden of malnutrition and poor dietary-nutrition outcomes is about improving the distribution of opportunities to live a healthy and fulfilling life. That is why we use a systematic approach that carefully considers underlying determinants/patterns that mask inequalities in nutrition indicators within communities by sociodemographic characteristics. Elucidating inequalities in nutrition indicators is pivotal to our process in building healthy, sustainable, resilient, and equitable nutrition communities,  enabling us make informed priority-setting, guiding equitable distribution of resources and targeting intervention-programs according to need.
