"Building New Evidence and Alliances for Improving Nutrition" is the theme for this fifth global conference.

Discussions will occur across four tracks:

  • Micronutrient biology and status assessment
  • Efficacy and safety of micronutrient interventions

In addition, progress in addressing micronutrient malnutrition across Southeast Asia will be highlighted.
