The Micronutrient Forum will hold its second international meeting in Beijing, China, 12-15 May, 2009. The title of the meeting is “Micronutrients, Health, and Development: Evidence–based Programs”. Building upon the theme of the Micronutrient Forum meeting in 2007 which reviewed the scientific base of key micronutrients, the Beijing meeting looks to review the evidence base for programs.
The Micronutrient Forum builds upon the success of the International Vitamin A Consultative Group (IVACG) and the International Nutritional Anemia Consultative Group (INACG), which were both established by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in 1975.
The Micronutrient Forum serves as a stimulus for policy-relevant science and a catalyst for moving the global community towards consensus around evidence-based policies and programs that reduce micronutrient deficiencies around the globe.
Meeting participants are welcome from a wide diversity of relevant disciplines such as maternal and child health, nutrition, biochemistry, agriculture, horticulture, education, communications, and development. Participants are expected to include representatives from international agencies, national ministries, educational and research institutions, food and chemical industries, and non-governmental organizations.
Program managers and researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations describing new data on the topics that follow. Abstracts should relate to, but are not limited to, the micronutrient deficiencies of primary interest to the Micronutrient Forum, vitamin A, iron, folate, iodine, and/or zinc.
Primary theme – lessons learned from large-scale programs that have, or have not, achieved their objectives.
Note: submissions sharing experiences from programs that have not achieved their objectives should include evidence supporting the conclusion that the objectives were not reached and clearly identify the lessons learned that will inform future programs and benefit the global community or other countries.
Monitoring processes and evaluating the outcomes/impacts of large-scale programs with indicators such as coverage, behavior change, nutrient intakes, micronutrient status, growth, development, etc.
Successes and failures in strengthening program design and planning, integrating interventions into other delivery platforms, managing/supervising implementation, and/or reaching the hard-to-reach.
Successes and failures in achieving sustainability, e.g. systems strengthening, assuring commodities, creating demand.
Preference will be given to abstracts describing well-designed programs or studies, providing new and potentially important findings with data that relate to the above topics. Please indicate the topic your abstracts refers to when submitting it.
Micronutrients and the immune response
Micronutrients and infectious disease with particular emphasis on HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria
Innovative approaches to assessment of micronutrient status
Early micronutrient deficiencies and their consequences over the life span
Micronutrient research or innovations pertaining to maternal and child health
