Our team at Dikoda believes that good nutrition is a fundamental human right and a critical element for achieving sustainable development.
In Bangladesh, we focus on maternal nutrition, nutrition in the workplace, and urban nutrition because we recognize that these areas are crucial for improving the health and well-being of communities.
WHAT WE DO:
At Dikoda, we research and test nutritionspecific and sensitive interventions using new design, new delivery platforms, and new entry points. We provide technical services through in-house experts and researchers to develop evaluations, impact studies, monitoring support, final assessments, cost-benefit analysis, training packages, and knowledge management solutions.
In Bangladesh, we specialize in needs assessment, customized and complex research design and implementation of standardized surveys with a strong focus on the agri-food system.
