End Malnutrition

In our lifetime.

There are over 2 billion people lacking access to vital nutrients.

Micronutrient deficiencies (not getting enough vitamins and minerals) are the leading cause of intellectual disability in children, preventable blindness among adults, and maternal death during childbirth.

Food fortification is the key

Food fortification is common in the developed world. We see it every day in our cereal and milk and salt—it costs about ten cents per person…per year. But two billion people don’t get what most of us take for granted.

It’s more cost effective than vaccinations in preventing or fighting disease. Micronutrient deficiency materially compromises the immune system of over 40% of the children in the developing world. It increasing their chances of dying from curable diseases like measles, malaria, and diarrhea by about 35%.

It is a solvable problem that if addressed improves health, longevity, quality of life, national resources and education. That’s why we are so passionate about it.

Large Scale Fortification

Great reach. Big impact. High return.

PHC/Exact works with governmental partners to design, implement, and maintain nationwide food fortification programs that reach tens of millions of people, providing them with the opportunity to develop into healthy and contributing members of their communities.

People Reached

Small Scale Fortification

We have designed and implemented the first of its kind, innovative technological solution for the 90% of people eating from small scale mills throughout developing countries.

Small scale fortification is implemented at the peri urban and rural level, filling a gap to reach millions of those not serviced by large scale fortification programs.

Refugee and High Risk Community Programs

Over one-hundred million women and children live in refugee camps or urban slums, without any access to a healthy diet. It’s getting worse.

These are the most vulnerable and forgotten people that we share our planet with. We have the means to fix that. Over 65 million people now live in refugee camps, the equivalent of the entire country of France.
