Status of initiative: N/a
Description/achievement of initiative

Across the globe, the International Council for Control of Iodine Deficiency Disorders (ICCIDD) will strive to ensure that every pregnant, lactating and child-bearing age woman, as well as every child, has access to optimal iodine to allow full realization of their individual mental and physical development potential.

Implementation methodologies

ICCIDD will advocate with governments, citizens, and development agencies at national, regional and global level for a strong and sustained commitment to optimal iodine nutrition and a world virtually free from iodine deficiency disorders. This will be done primarily through the strategy of universal consumption of iodized salt using a multidisciplinary approach that involves all relevant partners.
