WHA70 Side Event – Towards the Elimination of Iodine Deficiency by 2020

WHA70 Side Event – Towards the Elimination of Iodine Deficiency by 2020


Today, we are on the verge of eliminating iodine deficiency – a public health triumph that ranks with getting rid of polio and smallpox.  Over the past two decades, the number of iodine deficient countries has dropped from 113 in 1993 to just 19 in 2017.  Now, it’s time not only to celebrate success, but to look at how we walk the last few miles together towards eliminating iodine deficiency disorders.

GAIN, together with the World Health Organization (WHO), the Iodine Global Network (IGN), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), and Effective Altruism Geneva organize the event ‘Towards the Elimination of Iodine Deficiency by 2020’ on Tuesday, 23 May 2017, on the sidelines of the 70th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland.
