About the Conference

On behalf of the Micronutrient Forum and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Turkey, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the first international meeting of the Micronutrient Forum on 16–18 April 2007 in Istanbul. The Micronutrient Forum was established in 2006 with the aim of serving as a stimulus for policy-relevant science and as the internationally recognized catalyst for moving the global community towards consensus around evidence-based policies and programs that reduce micronutrient deficiencies around the globe.

It is our hope that this meeting will foster the exchange of new ideas, encourage innovations, present the latest research findings, increase awareness of the latest survey data, and promote action programs that translate these findings into practical application for the control of micronutrient deficiencies around the world.

Who Will Attend?
Participants from international agencies, food and chemical industries, national ministries, educational institutions and non-governmental organizations from the fields of health, nutrition, biochemistry, agriculture, education, communication, and development are expected to attend this 3-day meeting. Approximately 600 participants from an average of 60 countries are expected to attend.

This interdisciplinary meeting will bring together policy-makers, program managers, and scientists from many countries to share their experiences in the control of micronutrient deficiencies.
