Nutrition International

The Micronutrient Initiative (MI) is dedicated to ensuring that the world's most vulnerable-especially women and children in developing countries-get the vitamins and minerals they need to survive and thrive.  Passionate about developing and implementing solutions for hidden hunger, the Micronutrient Initiative works in partnership with governments, the private sector and civil society organizations to address this serious problem that affects one-third of the world´s population. Governed by an international Board of Directors, MI works in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America and the Middle East and reaches people in more than 75 countries. With headquarters in Ottawa, Canada MI maintains regional offices in New Delhi, India and Dakar, Senegal that manage our country offices in Asia and Africa. Our vision is a world free of hidden hunger. Our purpose is to ensure that the world’s most vulnerable – especially women and children – in developing countries get the vitamins and minerals they need to survive and thrive. Our mission is to be a global leader in advancing integrated, innovative and sustainable solutions to reduce vitamin and mineral deficiencies through advocacy, technical and programmatic support, in collaboration with others.   What We Do Since 1997, MI has provided more than 75% of the vitamin A required for supplementation programs in developing countries – more than 8 billion capsules and oral doses of vitamin A. Zinc has also been proven to strengthen the immune system to enable young children to survive infections and MI is working with governments to improve national diarrhoea treatment guidelines and has significantly increased its programming in recent years to provide additional zinc to children most in need. MI is leading efforts to reach the last 30% of households still not using iodized salt by working with small, local salt processors in providing simple and easy iodization techniques. MI offers its knowledge and technology to the food industry to add nutrients, such as iron and folic acid, to food cost-effectively without affecting its quality or taste, helping to improve the quality of life for women and their families. MI focuses on strengthening and integrating delivery platforms for micronutrients and other health interventions; advising governments on how to use their own resources to finance the marginal costs related to adding micronutrient supplementation, including vitamin A, iron and folic acid to existing health services and programs. The Micronutrient Initiative is: A team of experts with solid field experience Cost-effective, using innovative solutions with large scale impact and keeping administrative costs low Customized and innovative, approaching each project with a fresh perspective Local with staff on the ground who understand local needs and solutions Sustainable, empowering communities so that solutions become a permanent way of life Results-oriented, targeting regions where the greatest impact can be made Open and transparent, with good governance as a guiding principle
