About iLiNS

Our mission

To develop and test new solutions to help prevent malnutrition in vulnerable populations, and to share the knowledge and experience we gain.

In pursuit of this mission, we are developing new lipid-based nutrient supplements (LNS) to enrich local diets, and investigating their efficacy in improving child growth, health and development, and in improving the nutritional status of pregnant and lactating women and their infants. We are also exploring potential delivery systems and their cost-effectiveness. We aim to disseminate new knowledge widely and facilitate dialogue with other researchers and practitioners.
