Sight and Life helped establish the global Home Fortification Technical Advisory Group (HF-TAG) in 2009, and is now one of its Executive Committee members. HF-TAG comprises organizations implementing or supporting the scale-up of home fortification programs and includes UN agencies, academia, non-governmental organizations, and the producers of home fortification products.
HF-TAG provides guidance based on the best available evidence and current best practices, by developing manuals and guidelines. Sight and Life initiated, funded, and distributed a special supplement: ‘Home fortification with micronutrient powders’. We also provided technical assistance to the development of a quality manual on micronutrient powders.
