As Sight and Life commemorates 25 years of service to science and humanity, it is appropriate that we ask ourselves if our existence has made at least some difference to the way in which micronutrient malnutrition is addressed or has helped ensure that this issue receives greater attention within the ever noisier global public health and nutrition space. For us the answer is yes. We believe we have made a contribution. Now we would like to reflect more closely on the specifics and magnitude of this contribution, a question which is more difficult
to answer and quantify. Over the years, we have gathered many letters from grateful beneficiaries, in addition to numerous case studies on how Sight and Life’s direct contribution to vitamin A supplementation and, more  ecently, the way in which it has addressed multiple micronutrient deficiencies has improved lives; and on how our partnerships, capacity building initiatives and sponsorship of individuals to attend meetings and programs
have given people an opportunity for personal and professional development that they would never otherwise have had. We are certainly “building bridges for better nutrition,” as our by-line states. Yet the very world  building” implies and was carefully  selected to mean that the process is still happening − it is ongoing, and needed now more than ever. We only need to look at the current global nutrition statistics, and the real concern about reaching the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets that  are linked to nutrition, to know that we still have a long way to go before we can truly say that we have done our work and achieved our mission of “ensuring a sustainable and significant improvement in human nutrition, health and well-being.” The challenges are enormous and frequently the obstacles seem insurmountable.
