Special Issue "Nutrients and National Strategies to Impact Health"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2015).
Micronutrient malnutrition affects an estimated two billion people worldwide and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. As with other forms of malnutrition, there are many gaps in data on the determinants, prevalence, and consequences of micronutrient deficiencies at national and subnational levels, as well as on program performance to address these deficiencies. These gaps impair efforts to adequately advocate for, and implement, effective control strategies. In this Special Issue, we present a series of manuscripts from low- and middle-income countries that present updated prevalence estimates of micronutrient deficiencies and related inequalities, associated economic costs, trends in determinants, and data on program performance. It is hoped that these papers will help in the design of effective and sustainable micronutrient deficiency control strategies in low- and middle-income countries, with a specific focus on population groups who are currently unreached.
