Tajikistan wheat flour fortification assessment

USAID Tajikistan commissioned GAIN to assess the wheat sector in Tajikistan and identify opportunities for strengthening flour fortification with micronutrients. This report follows a desk review and interviews in October 2013, a mission to Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan in late October to November 2013 and analysis of feedback from national stakeholders in early 2014.

This assessment found positive trends in relation to the milling industry, overall production and imports and consumption trends- as well as foundation of knowledge and experience among millers and public health officials- upon which to launch a new effort for flour fortification. To achieve sustainable wheat flour fortification in Tajikistan, the report calls for a commitment from all involved stakeholders including government, international and national partners, and the milling industry.
