Of the more recent efforts, which have been successfully "implemented?" For these programs, what have been the key elements of success? What constraints were encountered? For past approaches to the prevention of micronutrient malnutrition that have faltered, either in outcome or in implementation, what have been the key elements of constraint? What are the unresolved technical issues for iron? For vitamin A? For iodine?

--> For a specific micronutrient deficiency, are some interventions more cost-effective than others? How does this vary for iron, vitamin A, and iodine, and why? Are there technological/scientific advances with promising applications for programs? Much of the literature suggests that food-based approaches to prevention of micronutrient deficiencies offer the best long-term solution. Where are examples where food-based approaches have been effective? Why haven't they been used more? What are the critical research needs that need to be filled to more effectively operationalize micronutrient interventions? What has been the experience with agricultural, fiscal, and other policies in regards to micronutrient problems, and what might be promising initiatives toward this end? What can be done to foster alliances among government, industry, and other parties to address micronutrient problems? What are the possibilities for synergy among approaches to micronutrient malnutrition? What can be done to promote political action to reduce micronutrient deficiencies (i.e., conduct effective advocacy to strengthen "political will")? What are the specific recommendations for future programmatic action? Working Group 2: Key Elements in the Design and Implementation of Micronutrient Interventions, Including the Importance of Research, Training, and Institution Building, and the Need for Sustainability in the Longer Term What have been the key managerial, community, and household/individual-level elements that have contributed to past program success or failure? Are any of these elements unique to micronutrient interventions? What are the elements that are required to sustain a micronutrient intervention? What combination strategies—across micronutrients or across approaches (e.g., dietary counseling combined with food fortification)—have proved successful (or have faltered) and what have been the elements of success (or constraint)? Which combination approaches have been particularly cost-effective, and why? What factors have influenced the degree of political support for micronutrient interventions? What are the specific recommendations for future programmatic action?
