PROGRAMME DEVELOPMENT

National review and progress toward sustainable ID elimination

Terms of Reference for USI programmes

 

 

 

 

A review of national progress towards optimum nutrition is valuable when a country has reached or is close to reaching optimum iodine nutrition through universal salt iodization. The main purpose of the review is to have an internal and external validation, and recommend ways that ensure that optimum iodine nutrition endures, with appropriate ongoing national public-private-civic oversight. The other reason for a review may be that the national progress is stalled at a certain level of salt iodization and an external review could be the stimulus needed to reappraise the problem and suggest new approaches to renew and accelerate progress towards this goal. In either case, the data itself may not be enough to initiate the process. A review may require stimulation of a request from The Office of the Prime Minister or MOH. In most cases the Representatives of WHO and UNICEF are best positioned to receive this request. This indicates national ownership and commitment to the process.
