The main goal of this track was: to update the evidence from efficacy and effectiveness trials evaluating how interventions affect nutritional status, health and other functional outcomes (impact in programmatic conditions, measured by program evaluations).Topics were prioritized based on both knowledge of new evidencethat was available, and of controversies that remain to be resolved. For example, recent evidence has emerged that programsproviding iron supplements to young children could increase the risk of mortality and/or morbidity, especially in those who were not iron-deficient initially. Much research has been subsequently focused on this question, and this was presented in the plenary session on the risks and benefits of iron interventions and their implications for iron status assessment
