(introduction...)

A symposium to promote exchange of information on policies and programmes for micronutrient deficiency control -known as the “Micronutrient Forum” - was held during the ACC/SCN Annual Session, at WHO Headquarters, Geneva, on 15-16 February 1993. The proceedings of the symposium, chaired by Dr B Underwood (WHO), which included five papers with eight discussants, were summarized by Drs Bouis and Trowbridge; the text of their summary presentation is given here.

The Micronutrient Forum also provided an opportunity for participating organizations to describe their activities, as summarized in the “Programme News” section starting on page 36.
