Large-scale Fortification

The best way to reach the most people

A healthy and nutritious diet is the cornerstone to a country’s development – it is the most cost effective way to prevent disease and illness, and the most important step toward providing children the opportunity to regularly attend school and show up alert and ready to learn.

Large-scale Fortification

The best way to reach the most people

A healthy and nutritious diet is the cornerstone to a country’s development – it is the most cost effective way to prevent disease and illness, and the most important step toward providing children the opportunity to regularly attend school and show up alert and ready to learn.

EnAct not only works with governments to put in place quality food fortification programs similar to what is seen in developed countries, we also equip them with the tools and training needed to monitor the programs so they can be sustained and effective in the years to come.

Currently, fortification programs across the globe face an urgent, universal challenge around verifying and enforcing the production of fortified foods with the correct amount of vitamins and minerals. An extremely limited amount of data exists globally on whether or not programs are actually delivering the intended amount of nutrients, thereby jeopardizing the health impact of these efforts.

EnAct intends to address this challenge by providing tools and training to enable governments, in 15 countries over 3 years, to track fortified foods delivered through national programs to ensure they contain adequate levels of nutrients (i.e. that which the national standard stipulates) needed to have a positive nutritional impact and to enable countries to act upon program gaps to improve outcomes in a timely, cost-effective, and sustainable manner.

By ensuring the delivery of adequate nutrients to target populations, EnAct is an integral component to PHC’s overall mission to end malnutrition.

Preventing problems before they occur frees up healthcare dollars previously spent on curing illness that should never have happened. For as little as $10,000 per year, using our training modules and online software programs, the team of EnAct consultants provide governments with the skills and software needed to make sure the laws and policies put in place are effective and enforced. That amounts to less than one-tenth of one cent per person each year!
