The Micronutrient Data Innovation Alliance (DInA) presents a webinar on:
Data-driven Success Stories:
Leveraging Micronutrient Data to Inform National Policies and Programs

This webinar aims to showcase successful examples from Ethiopia, Guatemala, and Nepal of micronutrient data-driven policy interventions, discuss context-specific challenges and limitations of micronutrient data collection, and review lessons learned and policy recommendations.
