Page Background

deficiencies of relevance discussed were Vitamin A, D, iron zinc and iodine. NCDs were

covered by lectures about the metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes

mellitus. Workshops conducted by the participants centred on the prevention of

micronutrient deficiencies by fortification of food items and on public health measures to

fight against over nutrition and obesity.

In the next issue of the Khon Kaen Public Health Forum it is intended to include

some of the most significant lectures and results of discussions. So far, it can be

concluded that the summer school covered an important spectrum of nutritional issues

related to pressing public health problems, especially in SEA countries. The topics

dealing with micronutrients provided a particularly interesting inside view of the newest

developments within this field in relation to the relevance of micronutrients towards

public health and prevention.
