In the outskirts of Islamabad, a union council of kirpa is full of passionate women, all eager to learn the ways to make their lives better. Women shared the misconceptions and issues regarding the iodized salt usage. The session was interactive and women of Kirpa suggested TN team to conduct more sessions to gain knowledge and information on health issues. This session was particularly of more importance as the majority of participants were mothers in law who are very influential in decision making regarding nutritional health of family. The participants admitted since they were not aware of iodized salt benefits so didn't use it. The women resolved to use iodized salt and would advice the pregnant women in their community to ensure iodized salt intake in the greater interest of physical and mental health of future generations.
