A list of questions advocates should ask themselves before using numbers that have been generated by a predictive model. The information came from a 1,000 Days Severe Malnutrition Learning Series webinar “Predictive Modelling for Nutrition: Using Projections to Enhance Advocacy” and was provided by speakers Dr. Derek Headey, Senior Research Fellow in the Poverty, Health and Nutrition Division at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) – Myanmar and Dr. Rebecca Heidkamp, faculty member in the Center for Human Nutrition, Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Bloomberg School of Public Health.
