Event Proceedings and Recommendations for Food Fortification Programs
This supplement summarizes the Summit proceedings and the recommendations arising from the event to improve fortification programs moving forward.
Part A of the supplement is the “Proceedings of the #FutureFortified Global Summit on Food Fortification.” This includes the Summit content, its partnerships, conclusions, and the first-ever global consensus document on fortification: “The Arusha Statement on Food Fortification.”
Part B comprises “Recommendations for Food Fortification Programs.” This is the fortification TAG report elaborating on the five Summit Statement recommendations on regulatory monitoring, evidence and guidelines, advocacy, resourcing and transparent reporting.
This supplement will help implementing agencies, policy-makers and donors, in particular, to improve coordination in the nutrition and food sectors. This in turn will help expand, improve and sustain national fortification programs, and ensure they help achieve public health objectives and relevant sustainable development goals.
