    Arlington, Virginia, Partnership for Child Health Care, 1995. [5] p. (Trip Report; BASICS Technical Directive: 000 HT 56 011; USAID Contract No. HRN-6006-C-00-3031-00)

    The International Dialogue on Micronutrient Malnutrition: Forum on Food Fortification, convened in Ottawa, Canada, in 1995, promoted partnership between the private and public sectors aimed at eliminating global malnutrition through strategies such as food fortification and supplementation. Participants agreed on the goal of eliminating micronutrient malnutrition by the year 2000, with an emphasis on iodine, iron, and vitamin A deficiencies. Achievement of this goal will entail, for each country, a needs assessment and discussion of the role of micronutrient fortification, establishment of a hierarchy of foods to reach the maximum population at risk, and dialogue to provide a link for technology and information exchange. The public sector will assist in the development of standards, provide incentives, and contact industry, while the private sector will provide scientific research and development, conduct market research, develop appropriate products, and disseminate and market the products; the role of international organizations will be to provide financial support and serve as liaison between the public and private sectors.
