AREA CoP Webinar: Technological innovations for anaemia prevention programmes

21 April 2020 15:00 – 16:00 CET

Halving anaemia prevalence by 2030 requires both efforts to scale-up proven nutrition interventions and the development of innovative solutions to address emerging bottlenecks.

Essential nutrition actions such as supplementation and food fortification with iron, face some technological challenges that are limiting their use at large scale. These barriers range from low acceptability and adherence to supplements to losses of available iron in a food matrix.

Universities and research institutions are working to create promising (and exciting!) options that can be implemented in the near term.

Please join this webinar where we will discuss novel iron compounds for food fortification and supplementation, lentil fortification and parenteral iron supplementation as a public health intervention.
