When Food is Not Enough

The causes of micronutrient deficiencies – or hidden hunger – are multiple and interconnected.

As the world works towards improving the diets of the world’s poor, many lives are saved and improved through supplementation. We work with partners and governments to delivery key micronutrients the body needs to survive and thrive.

At Nutrition International (formerly the Micronutrient Initiative), we focus on strengthening and integrating delivery platforms for micronutrients and other health interventions; advising governments on how to use their own resources to finance the marginal costs related to adding micronutrient supplementation, including vitamin A, iron and folic acid to existing health services and programs.
