On #GivingTuesday tomorrow, please consider supporting the Iodine Global Network (IGN). On this day of global giving, stand with us and support a child’s right to live a healthy, productive life.

At IGN, we lead the global effort to prevent the leading cause of brain damage worldwide: iodine deficiency.

Iodine deficiency has devastating consequences including mental retardation, stillbirth and miscarriage – and is entirely preventable. Our global network of partners (including Governments, development agencies, and the salt industry) is committed to eliminating iodine deficiency by 2020. We have made astounding progress, thanks to your generosity.

In the past year, thanks to you:
Globally, 86% of the population has access to iodized salt.

A resounding global success story that has significantly increased the supply of iodine to diets all over the world, in both developing and industrialized countries. 
Thank you for your support in the giving season!
Sudan is quickly on its way to optimal iodine nutrition.

IGN facilitated the purchase of state-of-the-art salt production equipment from Spain and China that now iodize 40% of the nation’s salt, ending a long struggle with iodine deficiency.
Thank you for your support in the giving season!
Lebanon has drastically improved its iodine program.
IGN raised the alarm on the urgent risk of iodine deficiency disorders, and advocated for revised legislation to improve salt production and iodization.
Thank you for your support in the giving season!

IGN is leading a global investigation on adding both iodine and iron to salt.
We have expanded collaboration with other organizations working to improve the supply of critical vitamins and minerals in the diet through food fortification and other nutrition programs.
Thank you for your support in the giving season!
Thanks to your generosity, children across the globe can reach their developmental potential and communities can thrive.

Stand with us to eliminate iodine deficiency by 2020! And be a part of one of the greatest success stories in global health.

On behalf of our global coalition, thank you for your generous support.
Sincerely,
Jonathan Gorstein
IGN Executive Director
