The iLiNS Project is comprised of a series of inter-related research activities, with the following six objectives:

  1. Develop low-cost, acceptable LNS formulations using locally-available ingredients
  2. Evaluate the efficacy of reduced-cost formulations of LNS for infants and young children
  3. Determine the optimal amount of zinc to include in LNS
  4. Evaluate the efficacy of LNS for pregnant and lactating women
  5. Investigate the economic dimensions of LNS use for prevention of malnutrition
  6. Coordinate efforts, build capacity and use results to inform nutrition policy and programs
