FREE Webinar: 76th World Health Assembly Resolution on Micronutrient Fortification of Staple Foods to Prevent Birth Defects: The Way Forward

You are invited to participate in free webinar on Tuesday, May 2, 2024, from 9:00 - 10:30 am Eastern:

On May 29, 2023, at the 76th World Health Assembly (WHA), member nations unanimously adopted the resolution titled: Accelerating efforts for preventing micronutrient deficiencies and their consequences, including spina bifida and other neural tube defects, through safe and effective food fortification. Many organizations are using their platforms to raise awareness for birth defects, and advocate and implement recommendations from the WHA resolution on food fortification. This will have a direct effect on improving micronutrient status among women of reproductive age and preventing birth defects. As we reach the first anniversary of the WHA resolution, this 90-minute webinar brings together global partners from various disciplines, including birth defects, nutrition, food fortification, and medicine, to share and discuss their global advocacy efforts towards implementation of the resolution. This webinar is free of charge and open to anyone who is interested. Registration is required (form below). The webinar will be recorded and shared with registrants after the live event.
