dc.description.abstractIodine deficiency disorders are a major challenge to the development of the health of the people in the South-East Asia Region. Despite several actions undertaken in the Region, the achievements among Member countries vary significantly. An expert consultative meeting was organized to assess the status of IDD control and prevention in countries of the South-East Asia Region. The meeting reviewed the IDD situation in the Member countries and recommended action towards the sustainable elimination of IDDs. A summary of the meeting report was also presented to the joint meeting of the Health Secretaries and the Consultative Committee for Programme Development and Management (‎CCPDM)‎ held in July 2007. An important part of the report is the compilation of all relevant information pertaining to the progress registered between 2004 and 2006 in the control and prevention of IDDs in the South-East Asia Region. The meeting report has also identified the need for guidance to Member countries on iodine requirements; quality assurance and monitoring of the IDD programme; importance of appropriate technology transfer; and cross-border issues in salt trade.en_US
