Vitamin and mineral deficiencies technical situation analysis: ten year strategy for the reduction of vitamin and mineral deficiencies


This report summarises the current technical information about vitamin and mineral deficiencies and identifies gaps in data and programmes. In doing so, it identifies some elements of a globalised approach for the micronutrient sector. 

The report tackles five central questions: 

  1. Why is reducing vitamin and mineral deficiencies critical for development?
  2. What is the extent of vitamin and mineral deficiencies?
  3. How can vitamin and mineral deficiencies be reduced?
  4. What are the costs of interventions?
  5. What is the role of international agencies in the micronutrient sector?

It is intended to inform the development of a future comprehensive multi-donor strategy for accelerating the reduction of vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the next decade.
