Smarter Futures QA/QC Training
11-14 May 2015 in Harare, Zimbabwe

The overall objective of this workshop was to train people in southern Africa who are responsible for key components of wheat flour and rice fortification programs (government food control officials, regulatory inspectors and milling industry personnel).

The workshop was designed to ensure that maize and wheat flour fortification programs are implemented correctly to achieve an effective public health impact. The expected effective public health impact is a systematic reduction in vitamin and mineral deficiencies, notably of iron and folic acid in the national population.

The workshop was hosted by the Ministry of Health, Zimbabwe, with support from:
•Smarter Futures
•UNICEF
•Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN)
•Project Healthy Children (PHC)

Smarter Futures is a partnership for Africa of the International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, AkzoNobel, Helen Keller International, the Government of the Netherlands, and the Food Fortification Initiative.
