The objective of the webinar is to disseminate the new Programme Guidance on monitoring of national salt iodization programmes and iodine status to programme managers and other national and international stakeholders involved in iodine nutrition and salt iodization programmes. The webinar is based on the recommendations published by UNICEF in 2018 "Guidance on the Monitoring of Salt Iodization Programmes and Determination of Population Iodine Status"
The “UNICEF Guidance on the Monitoring of Salt Iodization Programmes and Determination of Population Iodine Status” has compiled the lessons learned of decades of programme monitoring. It provides a set of recommendations and adjustments in the way monitoring should take place. The Guidance is intended to complement and update information contained in the WHO Guideline: fortification of food-grade salt with iodine for the prevention and control of iodine deficiency disorders
(2014) and the WHO/UNICEF/ICCIDD guide for programme managers: Assessment of iodine deficiency disorders and monitoring their elimination
