Over the past decade, the nutrition situation has improved greatly for many Albanians. Despite this progress, however, the nutritional status of the population, especially in certain areas of the country, remains a public health concern.

The purpose of the survey was to 1) assess food and nutrition security, dietary diversity and food management practices in resource-poor households in order to plan and implement activities
aimed at improving household food security and diets, 2) identify the main determinants of anaemia in high prevalence areas in order to plan and implement targeted interventions to reduce and prevent anaemia; and 3) create a baseline of knowledge, attitudes and practices on infant and young child feeding and care practices in order to help families and communities
improve their nutrition practices.
