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.
