Under this theme, poster presentations highlighted les- sons learned from successful micronutrient programs and continuing challenges to be addressed. Nepal and Tanzania provided two examples of impact with high quality micronutrient programming. Despite more than ten years of armed conflict and political instability (F28), data from Nepal reveal that the country has already achieved the World Fit for Children targets on vitamin A and anemia and is on track to reach the USI goal by 2010. In Tanzania, the 24% reduction in child mortality registered by large-scale household surveys between 2000 and 2004 was associated with the coun- try’s rapid increase in VAS coverage (F15); other major health and nutrition interventions retained stable and low coverage during this same period. Even in the case of strong programming, a poster from the Philippines showcased areas for improvement (F14), including: poor knowledge regarding the role of micronutrients and related policies/programs (e.g., supplementation schedules, Sangkap Pinoy Seal of fortification); low coverage of interventions for preg- nant and postpartum women; and supply stock-outs.
