The world’s leaders (governments, private sector and NGOs) intend to end poverty and keep the promise of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the goal date of 2015. This was clear from the numerous, well publicized events, launches and speeches in New York during the period September 20–23, 2010. We at SIGHT AND LIFE strongly believe that the renewed commitment can only be achieved if there is a dramatic acceleration of initiatives that not only focus on food production, and women and child health, but also nutrition security. Micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are the essential link between food and health – it is about ensuring that, in addition to sufficient calories to live, people have a quality diet providing the right balance of macronutrients and micronutrients, embedded in adequate care and sanitation, in order to grow and develop to their full potential and for optimal health. We therefore applaud the fact that the role of nutrition has been recognized at the highest level with the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon himself stating its importance. We fully support his words, “We know what works to save women’s and children’s lives, and we know that women and children are critical to all of the MDGs. Today we are witnessing the kind of leadership we have long needed.”
