Africa gears up for flour fortification

With the support of the Dutch Government, through the Millennium Agreements, IF organized with its partners a successful workshop on the fortification of flour in Cape Town, South Africa on 26 November 2010. 73 participants from 21 different countries benchmarked progress in their respective countries and discussed strategies to overcome barriers. The dialogue between government institutions, civic society and the milling industry is novel in the African context. Flour fortification is the only proven strategy to reduce neural tube defects, as Spina Bifida, also in South Africa, as shown in this article.
