The Salt Fortification team is a working subgroup of the PAHO/WHO Regional Expert Group on Cardiovascular disease prevention through dietary salt reduction that serves as the primary source for evidence-based policies.

The following 6- and 10- months markers were set by the group:
At 6 Months:
Contact and coordinate with UNICEF about iodine fortification programs
At 10 Months:
