New global estimates of micronutrient deficiencies

Micronutrient deficiencies (MNDs) can lead to devastating health consequences including higher risks for anemia, blindness, cognitive impairments, poor birth outcomes, infections, and mortality. New data in a forthcoming publication in Lancet Global Health indicates alarming levels of MND across all global contexts. There is an increasing need to ensure that everyone has access to a variety of micronutrient–dense foods.
