This report provides detailed arguments for addressing micronutrient malnutrition and practical advice drawn from program experience. The book suggests three main strategies:
• Educate consumers so that they fully appreciate and understand the importance of micronutrients in their diet
• Encourage the fortification of foodstuffs by combining market incentives and regulatory enforcement
• Distribute, as a last resort, micronutrient capsules and other supplements, using all public and private channels available.
World Bank-assisted projects in 30 countries now have micronutrient components. This number could grow, but the effort will require stronger partnerships with nongovernmental organizations, private industry, and international organizations.
