To be the authoritative voice for iodine nutrition. IGN supports and catalyzes global and national iodine programs, working with key public, private, scientific and civic stakeholders. They focus on universal salt iodization as the most cost-effective and sustainable solution for prevention of iodine deficiency disorders.


The Iodine Global Network (IGN) aims to reduce iodine deficiency globally by advocating for national salt iodization programs, tracking progress on iodization, and providing global and country-specific guidance on related programmatic and scientific issues. GiveWell believes there is strong evidence that salt iodization increases cognitive development in children with mild to moderate iodine deficiency.
