Project Healthy Children
Project Healthy Children (PHC) works with national governments and manufacturers to fortify staple foods with essential micronutrients such as iron, folic acid and iodine, protecting populations from debilitating conditions caused by malnutrition. PHC works with both large-scale and small-scale producers of staple food products in order to reach even the most vulnerable populations with essential micronutrients, at an average cost of 25 cents per person per year.
PHC currently operates food fortification programs in Rwanda, Malawi, Liberia, Burundi, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania. The organization successfully completed a program in Honduras in 2010. Worldwide, PHC’s food fortification programs benefit more than 55 million people.
