The Double-Fortified Salt (Iodized Salt with Iron) Consultation:
A Process for Developing Evidence-Based Consideration for Countries

The success of salt iodization as a public health intervention has led to the exploration of its potential to carry additional nutrients to address critical vitamin and mineral deficiencies, in particular iron. Because of this growing interest in double fortified salt and the need for a comprehensive review of evidence about this intervention, IGN initiated a global consultation to gather all available data on different aspects of DFS.
