The Integration to Effective Implementation (I-to-I) concept is intended to address the complexities of the global health context through engagement of the continuum of stakeholders involved in the food and nutrition enterprise. The I-to-I approach was applied as a case study at the 2014 Micronutrient Forum (MNF) Global Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to explore current concerns about the safety and effectiveness of interventions to prevent and treat iron deficiency.

A comprehensive approach that considers basic biology, assessment, interventions, and translation into appropriate programs and policies is needed to address the complexity of iron deficiency. The application of the I-to-I with the use of the MNF offered an opportunity to explore how that might be achieved.
