The Micronutrient Forum

The Micronutrient Forum

2 – 6 June 2014. Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  The Micronutrient Forum. Organised by the World Bank and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The world’s leading nutrition, food security, global health and sustainable agriculture experts and practitioners addressed micronutrient malnutrition, which affects one in three people in the world – most of them poor women and children in developing countries.

The knowledge shared at the Micronutrient Forum Global Conference will help achieve the following goals:

  • Promote the availability of foods that contain key micronutrients;
  • Increase the scale of effective micronutrient delivery programs to reach more people on an ongoing basis;
  • Provide a structure that engages the right players at the global, regional and national levels and coordinates their efforts;
  • Build capacity and nurture leaders where the need for micronutrients is greatest;
  • Build for a brighter future by laying the groundwork for ongoing commitment and investment in micronutrient solutions;
  • Add to the body of scientific evidence through knowledge sharing; and
  • Close the gaps between the best evidence supporting micronutrient interventions and the design and delivery of programs.
