What is The HF Network?

The Home Fortification Network (HF Network) is an on-line community of practice website created to connect home fortification programme implementers and to provide practical and technical guidance. It aims to connect people to discuss issues, raise questions, capture and diffuse existing knowledge, introduce collaborative processes and help people organize and generate new knowledge about home fortification using micronutrient powders (MNP); some discussions about small quantity LNS are also emerging and featured.

 Note: Additional sessions were also held 19-Nov-2014 12:00pm & 12:30pm.
