Monitoring Universal Salt Iodization Programs


This manual has been prepared in response to a strong need in the field for a systematic procedure to establish an iodized salt monitoring system within a country and monitor progress towards the achievement of the mid-decade goal of universal iodization of salt. It is designed for country program managers who require guidelines and reference material in order to design and implement IDD monitoring programs. The salt monitoring system implemented within a country will be affected by a combination of local factors including the salt industry and health infrastructure. It will therefore be up to a country program manager to select those elements most appropriate for their situation.
