Abstract

A task force was convened by the New York Academy of Sciences to evaluate new evidence that was not available at the time of, and to help countries interpret, recent World Health Organization guidelines for nutrition interventions in pregnancy as they relate to multiple micronutrient supplementation. The report of the task force is published in a recent special issue of Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences. Here, we provide a short introduction to the special issue.
