April 15, 2015 7:00am - 8:30am
This is the fourth webinar in the home fortification series, coordinated by UNICEF and CDC in collaboration with HF-TAG. This session focuses on MNP formulations, dosing regimen, and delivery schemes and channels. The presenter will discuss the options and rationale for different formulations and dosing regimens, including timing of distribution, recommended nutrient intake and interactions with other micronutrient programmes. Key considerations for selecting the best formulation for specific programming needs will also be discussed, including special circumstances and environmental contexts that impact micronutrient needs.
The presenter will also discuss determining the target population, distribution mechanism, and frequency of distribution. This includes the interaction between delivery schemes and channels and dosing regimen, as well as the suitable and less suitable delivery channels based in part on effective communication and messaging. The webinar will explain the related recommendations for home fortification programmes, and support decision making for designing an MNP programme that best fits each setting.
