The Potential Impact of Climate Change on the Micronutrient-Rich Food Supply

On April 20, 2021, the Scientific Group of the United Nations Food Systems Summit 2021 published the paper Food System Innovation Hubs in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Improving Nutrition. Improving Lifes.

Multiple Micronutrient Supplementation

Sight and Life Global Research Institute

GoalThis partnership between Sight and Life, Royal DSM NV (prior to 2003, Hoffmann-La Roche), and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, is driven by the common goal of preventing vitamin A and other micronutrient deficiencies in impoverished and undernourished regions of the world.DescriptionThe binding element of this partnership is a common vision and

Inspire! Invest! Innovate!

Our aspiration is that the transformation of failing food systems lies in Innovation Hubs.

Innovation for Transformation

The Covid-19 pandemic has served as a collective reminder that our well-being is delicately intertwined with that of our neighbor. During this crisis, we have also seen that the transfer of data, information, know-how, and resources across borders has been crucial in accelerating our capacity for mitigation. By sharing new treatment strategies, developing safe and effective vaccines, and distributing PPE to those who need it most we have come together in a global, coordinated effort. This has been remarkable and heartening to witness.

The Dietary Diversity Score Dilemma

Today, Sight and Life is joining hands with FAO to celebrate World Food Day. This year, in fact, marks the 75th Anniversary of the founding of FAO, and World Food Day 2020 aptly has the theme “Grow, nourish, sustain. Together. Our actions are our future.”

The Convergence of COVID-19, Climate Change and Malnutrition

When I set out to write this piece about COVID-19, climate change and malnutrition, I asked myself whether there might be anything new that I could add to the debate, given the myriad blogs, commentaries and webinars already proliferating on the subject. In my quest for lasting solutions to the global scourge of malnutrition, it is important for me not to lose sight of the big picture, to learn from the past, and not to jump on the bandwagon when global priorities change.

Opinion: Engaging nutrition to improve pregnancy outcomes

On December 17, 2019, Devex published “Opinion: Engaging nutrition to improve pregnancy outcomes” by Klaus Kraemer, managing director of Sight and Life and adjunct associate professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The full article can be read here on Devex.

Changing the Standard: Why Multiple Micronutrient Supplements in Pregnancy are an Ethical Issue

On 9 July 1999, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations University (UNU) held a technical workshop at the UNICEF headquarters in New York to address widespread micronutrient deficiencies and high rates of anemia among pregnant women. Looking beyond iron and folic acid (IFA), the workshop designed a comprehensive prenatal supplement – or multiple micronutrient supplement (MMS) –that would be tested in effectiveness trials among pregnant women in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Thus, the United Nations International Multiple Micronutrient Antenatal Preparation – now commonly known by its acronym, UNIMMAP – was born.
