About the product

The report marks almost two decades since the 1990 World Summit for Children set the goal of virtual elimination if iodine deficiency disorders (IDD). It has three main purposes: it reviews the global and national efforts to eliminate IDD during the past two decades; captures the lessons learned and best practices in the elimination of IDD in various countries; and proposes an agenda against IDD as a vital step towards preventing adverse effects on international development and human potential. The publication also provides information about UNICEF’s activity, its current priorities and, to the extent possible, where it is headed.
