As Sight and Life commemorates 25 years of service to science and humanity, it is time to reflect on what has been achieved and to plan for the future. The mid 1980s witnessed a crisis of epidemic food hunger in Eastern Africa, unprecedented in modern times. In the wake of this crisis, Sight and Life was launched to disseminate information needed to combat malnutrition, and to take direct action, focusing on the provision of vitamin A capsules. In the 25 years since its founding, Sight and Life’s mission has expanded to include advocacy for program intervention, based upon pioneering efforts to identify and disseminate scientific understanding of the impact of micronutrients on human health.
