Fortify Health is working to improve hundreds of thousands of lives by tackling widespread anemia and neural tube defects in India.
Fortify Health is leading an iron and folic acid fortification project in India, contributing to ongoing efforts to expand fortification across the country. After months of research, meetings, and project visits, we received a full grant to set up a wheat flour fortification project that could have a substantial impact on people's health.
What is fortification?
Fortification is the addition of vital micronutrients to food, usually staple foods such as flour or rice. Boosting consumption of these micronutrients, to ensure adequate intake is attained, ensures a plethora of long-term health benefits.
