As Sight and Life shares its success story and outlines its work in the fight against blindness and micronutrient malnutrition, special tribute is paid to the many people and organizations affiliated with Sight and Life who have, over the years, helped alleviate suffering and prevent sickness in the poorest of the poor communities around the world.

 

The first two chapters of the book provide a comprehensive overview of the history of vitamin A and trace the evolution of Sight and Life’s work from solely vitamin A focused initiatives to the wider world of micronutrients. Chapters three and four establish the realities of micronutrient deficiency in both the developed and developing world by presenting the effects and manifestations of these deficiencies in both cases. These chapters confirm that the issue of micronutrient deficiency is extremely relevant to all societies today, as its effects and manifestations are equally damaging regardless of which part of the world one belongs to. Chapter five deals with strategic approaches to bridging global nutrition gaps, and outlines some of the pivotal strategies that have been employed – and proven to work – in both developed and developing societies. As such, it provides valuable insight into how nutrition-related issues can be tackled and successfully overcome. Chapters six, seven and eight address the roles of research and scientific advances, policy and advocacy, and the implementation of change derived from these on the ground.

 

In so doing, these chapters help paint an accurate picture of the inter-related roles of all three elements in bringing about lasting change in the nutrition sphere, and illustrate the importance of maintaining the right blend of policy and research in order to achieve a practically viable outcome. In chapters nine and ten we are presented with a global overview of micronutrients along with what has been done at various levels to mitigate the effects of deficiencies in a sustainable manner.
