Nutrition International is leading a collaborative effort to test and introduce double-fortified salt with iodine and folic acid into the Ethiopian marketplace to prevent neural tube defects.
In Ethiopia, undernutrition is evident across the lifecycle. More than one third of children under five are stunted and one out of every 10 children are wasted. Nearly a third of Ethiopian women are malnourished and more than 20% are anaemic. This affects their health and contributes to the intergenerational cycle of undernutrition.
