Leaving the Chrysalis Behind Chairman’s Concluding Remarks, 2nd Micronutrient Forum, Beijing, May 15, 2009

I can’t help but reflect on how far this meeting, and our shared journey to control micronutrient deficiency, has come since the first International Vitamin A Consul – tative Group (IVACG) meeting nearly 35 years ago. It was not as if the world was ignorant about micronutrients – iodine and iron had long been on the agenda. But the world just didn’t care. Micronutrient deficiency did not provide the same public urgency, as say, H1N1 Flu. And I believe at great risk to life and limb, given the  make-up of this audience – that nutritional scientists and policy makers were caught in a time-warp of orthodoxy.
