    Iodine deficiency in affected populations will continue unless continuous supplementation is provided, the most cost-effective way being salt iodization. The term iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) refers to all the ill-effects of iodine deficiency in a population that can be prevented by ensuring that the. The correction of iodine deficiency was not accompanied by unfavorable side effects. In conclusion, the Czech Republic has achieved sustainable elimination of iodine deficiency.

We focus our salt iodization work in Senegal, as a regional hub for West Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Kenya, which is a hub for East Africa.

    Disseminating knowledge regarding hazards of iodine deficiency and benefits of iodized salt and universal salt iodization is essential to ensure elimination of iodine deficiency disorders.   Universal salt iodization (USI) is the most effective and sustainable intervention strategy for prevention, control, and elimination of iodine deficiency []. Successful implementation of USI requires effective monitoring, which includes assessment of USI coverage and iodine nutrition status of vulnerable groups in the target population [].
