The Mighty Nutrients Coalition is an evidence-based voice that drives collective advocacy for the power of vitamins and minerals — mighty nutrients — to improve health and unlock human potential.
The Coalition works to drive increased investments and actions needed to scale-up micronutrient solutions.
Our goal is to support more resilient and effective systems — from health and social protection to agriculture and education — that better deliver micronutrients to improve and safeguard health, with a focus on vulnerable women and children.

Investing in eliminating micronutrient deficiencies means making an investment in people — people who are strong and healthy enough to learn, work, innovate, contribute, and lead meaningful lives.
Without the unified voice and collective action of the Mighty Nutrients Coalition, our community risks being pushed down the global health and development agenda.
A world without micronutrient deficiencies is possible,
but we must move forward together.
Join us and contribute your expertise to the movement.
