WHO’s Vitamin and Mineral Nutrition Information System

WHO’s Vitamin and Mineral Nutrition Information System is now available in French and Spanish. The Arabic, Chinese and Russian sites will be online shortly. This has been part of our efforts in upgrading and expanding this vitamin and mineral nutrition surveillance system. In addition to the Micronutrients Database the site now contains other sections on indicators, monitoring and evaluation tools and resources, publications and laboratory capacity with a description of each of the ongoing efforts. There are new features coming in the next months when many more functionalities will become available.

Technical support was provided by Dr Luz Maria De-Regil and Dr Lisa Rogers and the technical staff from the International Micronutrient Malnutrition Prevention and Control Program (IMMPaCt) from CDC. Grace Rob provided technical assistant for the preparation of the French and Spanish versions.
