Task Force on Multiple Micronutrient Supplementation (MMNS) in Pregnancy Meeting

April 17-18 - The second of two invitation-only workshops hosted by the Sackler Institute in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to review recent evidence on multiple micronutrient supplementation and propose a roadmap to guide decisions in countries considering the implementation of such programs. While the first meeting focused on discussing the benefits and potential risks of multiple micronutrient supplementation, identifying research gaps, and populations that may benefit most from supplementation, the second meeting focused primarily on considerations for the development of a roadmap to guide countries considering multiple micronutrient supplement implementation.
