MICRONUTRIENTS DEFICIENCY

MICRONUTRIENTS DEFICIENCY
Grand Challenge

A staggering 2 billion people worldwide suffer from micronutrient deficiency, which is perhaps the most prevalent yet addressable aspect of world hunger. Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals (e.g., iodine, iron, vitamin A) that help prevent brain damage and forestall disease. A group of Nobel laureate economists ranked micronutrient interventions as the single most cost-effective way to combat global poverty. The Micronutrients XPRIZE will provide the world’s hungry with the means to stay nourished and healthy.
