The Micronutrient Initiative is a global leader on nutrition. The organization delivers high impact interventions and drives new approaches that contribute to the global effort to scale up nutrition. Every year, working in collaboration with donors, governments and partners, it reaches close to 500 million of the world’s most vulnerable, especially women and children, with critical nutrition interventions.
MI became a signatory to the UN Global Compact in October 2004.
