Dear Friends, Official Members and Supporting States, and Stakeholders,

I am most delighted to introduce you to the Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina against Malnutrition (IIMSAM) that is honoured to have the opportunity to serve the international community in the capacity of an Inter-governmental Observer to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, located at the United Nations Headquarters, in New York.

The linkage between nutrition and human development is well recognized and so is the significance of quality nutrition in public health. Malnutrition is by far the most important single cause of illness and death globally. The costs of malnutrition in terms of lost development and productivity are enormous. Even mild to moderate malnourishment in the womb reduces future cognitive development of a child. It has serious impacts on groups that have traditionally been marginalized such as women and the girl child. Nutrition plays a crucial role in the reproduction of poverty from one generation to the next and must be tackled on an immediate priority basis to secure the United Nations Development Goals 2015-2030.

Without the distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition, it is a fundamental right of everyone to be free from malnutrition and hunger; and have access to safe and nutritious food. Only when basic necessities are fulfilled will there be real progress. The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health as the right of every human being cannot be realized unless there is a felt need for establishing equitable and sustainable food systems.

IIMSAM envisions raising the level of nutrition and improvement of public health through Spirulina- a micro-algae abundant in essential proteins, minerals and vitamins that can be easily assimilated by the human body. Spirulina's preventive and curative aspects; and inherent benefits of easy availability, accessibility, and affordability; make it an important policy tool of tremendous practical significance to enrich the human capital across the globe especially among the Developing and the Least Developed Countries.
