8.2 COMMUNICATION

The results of the situation analysis have to be disseminated among administrators, politicians, health professionals and the public.

Recent findings on the impact of iodine deficiency on human growth and development are not well known among health professionals and health administrators in developing countries. There is a need for more education.

The message that requires marketing through all the means available is that the consequences of iodine deficiency are totally preventible, such message must be stated in a way that it is easily understood by the communities at risk.
