Vitamin and Mineral Nutrition Information System (VMNIS)

Vitamin and Mineral Nutrition Information System (VMNIS)

The Vitamin and Mineral Nutrition Information System (VMNIS), formerly known as the Micronutrient Deficiency Information System (MDIS), was established in 1991 following a request by the World Health Assembly to strengthen surveillance of micronutrient deficiencies at the global level. Part of WHO's mandate is to assess the micronutrient status of populations, monitor and evaluate the impact of strategies for the prevention and control of micronutrient malnutrition, and to track related trends over time. The Evidence and Programme Guidance Unit of the Department of Nutrition for Health and Development manages the VMNIS through WHO's network of regional and country offices, and in close collaboration with national health authorities.

Essential Nutrition Actions: improving maternal, newborn, infant and young child health and nutrition

Malnutrition in all its forms is closely linked, either directly or indirectly, to major causes of death and disability worldwide.
