Hosted by the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania and GAIN at Arusha under Mount Meru in Tanzania from September 9–11, 2015, this was truly a meeting that brought together parties interested in large-scale fortification: millers; the food industry; implementing agencies, and governments. Co-Conveners were the AU (African Union), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the United Nations (UNICEF, WFP), and USAID (the United States Agency for International Development), along with technical partners: the CDC, IMMPaCt, the Food Fortification Initiative, Helen Keller International, the Iodine Global Network (previously ICCIDD), MNF (the Micronutrient Forum), MI (the Micronutrient Initiative), PATH, PHC (Project Healthy Children), Sight and Life, and Smarter Futures. Demonstrating the full range of the partners involved, other partners included ETHZ (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland), FANTA III, FHI360, the UN SUN (Scaling Up Nutrition) Movement, and WHO (the World Health Organization). The stated aim of the Summit was to inspire “action to reach billions through one of the world’s most cost-effective development solutions.”
