This is a report of a stakeholder survey that was conducted to seek views on a proposed ten year plan to combat vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Interviews were conducted early in 2006 with 155 stakeholders from developing and developed countries, intergovernmental organisations, business and industry, nongovernmental organisations, university researchers, donors and financial institutions.
The report is in three parts:
- Main findings;
- Stakeholders roles and expectations; and
- Cross-cutting messages.
The survey analysis is an effort to build evidence-based advocacy that will help to mainstream support for micronutrient programmes as integral parts of other development efforts ranging from health, trade and tariff reform, industrial sector development, agriculture and environment.
