Symposium on Dietary Intakes: Assessing What We Eat & Evaluating Methodologies

ILSI Southeast Asia Region organized a symposium to explore methods for collecting data by various countries in the region, what current data indicate populations are eating, and importantly, how jurisdictions might better harmonize their collection methods so data can be compared across national borders.

Held in Singapore in April 2016, representatives from Australia; Indonesia; Malaysia; Philippines; Thailand, and Singapore presented case studies and debated future opportunities. PDF copies of presentations and a summary report are available here:
