INFORMAS in Ethiopia is run by Dr Kaleab Baye, Ursula Truebswasser and Elise Talsma

A qualitative study, using Photovoice, has been conducted between October 2018 and May 2019 in one public and one private school of Addis Ababa.

In a second study in March-April 2019, the internal and external school food environment has been assessed around 12 secondary schools for different types of food outlets and food advertising, using the INFORMAS food promotion and food retail modules. All food outlets and food advertising has been mapped and visibility of ultra-processed foods and drinks has been assessed.
