Data for Decisions to Expand Nutrition Transformation (DataDENT) is a four-year initiative (2017-2021) that aims to transform the availability and use of nutrition data by addressing gaps in nutrition measurement and advocating for stronger nutrition data systems.

DataDENT is implemented by three institutions: Institute for International Programs (IIP) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and Results for Development Institute (R4D). IIP manages day-to-day operations of DataDENT.

DataDENT is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. DataDENT collaborates with other data-focused initiatives and institutions such as Countdown to 2030Alive & ThrivePOSHAN (Partnerships and Opportunities to Strengthen and Harmonize Actions for Nutrition), and Transform Nutrition West Africa.
