Percentageof households consuming salt with 15 ppm or more iodine

Nepal is near to USI goal of household using adequately iodized salt since around 80% household are currently consuming adequately iodized salt.

trend in household use of adequately iodized salt 15 ppm and above
Trend in Household Use of Adequately Iodized Salt (15 ppm and above)

Nepal made a good progress in achieving IDD goal since 2005 due to promotion of iodized salt in the last decade, 1999 to 2011, strengthening legal system including iodized salt monitoring system in salt warehouses, capacity building of IMS staffs, advocacy and policy, strategy and plan update.

Increased household use of iodized salt with two child logo is one factor that contributed in accelerating towards IDD goal.

However, Geographical inequity is still persistent in some areas where the household use of adequately iodized salt is still low, around 43%.

Ref. NDHS2011

In those areas, use of two child logo salt is lowest- Only 25% households in the rural areas of Mid and Far Western Hills are using two child logo salt.

Ref. NLSS2011

Reasons:

Key Bottlenecks - 2

Poor attitude and practices, despite of having knowledge

Iodized salt with two child logo heaping in District Headquarter since CDO office is the distribution center for subsidized salt.

Poor Political Commitment at local level.

proposed action
Proposed Action

The social marketing campaign approach implemented in the Western terai region from 1999 to 2006 and Eastern and Central Terai Region from 2007 to 2011 proved this approach can increase household consumption of adequately iodized salt.

Thus, the approach is proposed to implement in the Far Western and Mid Western Hills from the period from 2013 to 2017.

program planning
Program Planning
  • Social Marketing Campaign will be implemented in two districts of Far Western Hills, Accham and Doti, in 2012
  • The campaign will be expanded to two other districts of the same hilly region, Bajura and Bajhang, in 2013.
  • Gradually, the program will cover all districts of Mid and Far Western Region.
