About US

The Micronutrient Forum is a consultative group that brings together people from a wide array of sectors who share an interest in reducing micronutrient malnutrition – including researchers, policy-makers, program implementers, and the private sector. The Micronutrient Forum facilitates dialogue, fosters collaboration, and disseminates up-to-date research to improve the design and implementation of scalable programs, as well as to identify and facilitate the filling of key evidence gaps.

The Micronutrient Forum global conference in Addis Ababa from 2-6 June 2014 marks the revival of the Micronutrient Forum and focuses on the convergence of interests and shared responsibility among stakeholders from various sectors, including nutrition, health, agriculture, social protection, food security, the private sector and their spheres of influence.

about us

The theme of the Micronutrient Forum Global Conference in 2014 is ‘building bridges’ – with an emphasis on bridging scientific advances and multi-sectoral programming needs to ensure adequate micronutrient intake and status across the life cycle.

This theme will be implemented across four thematic topics that will a) update evidence and methods for measuring micronutrient deficiencies, excesses and coverage, with implications for policies and programs; b) highlight and discuss the effectiveness of nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions to improve micronutrient intake and status; c) spotlight and debate challenges and opportunities for scaling up evidence-based policies and programs from diverse sectors; and d) identify, present and explore mechanisms, challenges and opportunities for engagement among various stakeholders.
