Areas of research

Our activities as an organization are guided by current research knowledge, and our goal is to identify and address scientific questions to increase the effectiveness of iodine programs.  IGN has a large network of scientists around the world and supports research addressing questions in iodine programs.

Work in progress includes research aimed at improving definitions of optimal iodine nutrition in children, women of reproductive age and pregnant women; estimating habitual iodine intake, and seasonality of iodine deficiency.
