ISSN

Micronutrient deficiencies are usually more prevalent in developing countries, and are usually the result of inadequate or insufficient food intake, low nutritional quality of the diet, and/or low bioavailability of micronutrients, among other factors. These deficiencies can have multiple negative consequences during the course of the life cycle of individuals, including effects on growth and development of the child and her survival. In recent decades, numerous efforts have been carried out in Latin America and the Caribbean to prevent and control micronutrient deficiencies. Even as the region’s epidemiologic and nutritional profile has undergone rapid changes, characterized by an increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity, the deficiency of some micronutrients persists, especially among the most economically, geographically or socially vulnerable groups.
