This sensitizing session focused on consumption of iodized salt and importance of its usage to combat iodine deficiency which cost us 10 – 15 point loss in IQ level, resulting in retarded growth, low school performance and higher school dropouts. The session was particularly important as the participants were mostly young girls and they were all eager to know about the consumption of iodized salt and its health benefits. There were three LHVs in the session and they resolved to carry the message about the iodized salt consumption in their communities. The session was interactive and the queries related to misconceptions of iodized salt were resolved. There were 41 participants. 4rth June 2014.
