This effort was made in coordination with WHO to inform those working in the Region of the Americas on the WHO guidelines on iodine fortification and guidelines on salt reduction.

Additionally, the Global Salt Toolkit and integrated monitoring systems for iodine and salt intake were discussed in detail. The webinar targeted PAHO focal points, nutrition and noncommunicable disease managers in the ministries of health, and other stakeholders in the Region.
