Iodine Deficiency Disorders Control Programme
The programme focusses on the promotion of iodised salt consumption to eliminate IDDs which are prevalent in Ghana. This is done
through enforcement of the Public Health Amendment law 2012 Act 851, which states that salts for human and animal cosumption must be
iodised. The programme also trains salt producers on effective ways of iodising salt.
