Case Study about Use of Iron Supplements to Prevent and Treat Iron Deficiency Anemia
The purpose of the International Nutritional Anemia Consultative Group (INACG) is to guide international activities aimed at reducing nutritional anemia in the world. INACG offers consultation and guidance to various operating and donor agencies that are seeking to reduce iron deficiency and other nutritionally prevent- able anemias.
INACG is dedicated to reducing the prevalence of iron deficiency and other nutritionally preventable anemias worldwide. In fulfilling this mandate, INACG sponsors scientific reviews and convenes task force groups to analyze issues re- lated to etiology, treatment, and prevention of nutritional anemias. The need to examine these issues is acknowledged as being important to the establishment of public policy and action programs. Keep Reading….
The Secretariat of the Scientific Committees was provided by the services of the Commission. Most of Community Directives and Regulations related to foodstuffs, required the Commission to consult the Committee on provisions which may have an effect on public health falling within the scope of these directives and regulations.

Study about Key Performance Indicators and Benchmarking
Executive Summary: The First Regional Training Course on “Key Performance Indicators and Benchmarking for Water Utilities in the MENA/Arab Region” was held in Alexandria, Egypt from July 4 to 8, 2010.

Case Studies about Non-Formal Education by Distance and Open Learning
Background: This research report has its origins in the collaborative project between the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) and the International Extension College (IEC), institutions with considerable experience in distance education. COL, an international organisation established after the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 1987, has a mandate to create and widen opportunities for learning throughout the Commonwealth by exploiting the potential of distance education.
IEC is a registered charity that serves people primarily in the developing world by providing support in open and distance education techniques. IEC’s purpose as a development organisation is to promote improvement in the quality of life through the expansion of educational opportunities, which it has been doing for 30 years. The research project grew out of a study commissioned by COL and carried out by IEC in 1995. IEC’s brief was ‘to undertake an environmental scan of active non-formal education projects/activities which are employing distance education methodologies and to develop a framework for and identify possible case studies for further elaboration.

A Study about International Research and Exchange Board
Introduction: The University of Education, Winneba (UEW) was established in 1992 as a university college. Seven specialized diploma awarding institutions were put together to form the University College of Education of Winneba. UEW was mandated to provide higher education and foster a systematic advancement of science and art of teacher education, train tutors for the Colleges of Education and other tertiary institutions, provide teachers with professional competence for teaching in pre-tertiary institutions and the non-formal sector.
The university was also to foster links between school and community in order to ensure the holistic training of teachers. UEW pursued this mandate for twelve years under the academic supervision of the University of Cape Coast. In 2004, by the Act of the Parliament of Ghana, University of Education, Winneba Law, Act 672, the Government of Ghana, through the Ministry of Education granted autonomy to the university giving it the authority to design and supervise its own academic programs in pursuance of its mission.
Introduction: Jacadis is a security consultancy based in Columbus, Ohio that applies its “practical security” mandate to small-to-medium sized businesses and government agencies throughout the state. Jacadis used to conduct security assessments the traditional way, which entailed periodic vulnerability audits with manual software tools, correlation of vulnerability data, elimination of false positives, and explanations of the data to clients. “The old approach was really time consuming, expensive and not an effective way to demonstrate best practices in vulnerability and threat management,” says Davidson. Jacadis switched to the QualysGuard on demand vulnerability management solution.

The business case for succession planning is not new, but the business mandate has never been stronger. The labor market – both the demand and supply sides – continues to shift. In the U.S. for example, the shifting age mix of workers brings to the fore the need for effective succession planning. We have all seen statistics like these: the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the Census Bureau project that there will be almost no growth in the number of younger workers in the U.S. labor force in this decade. Meanwhile, the number of workers age 55 and above will grow by over 40 percent.
The stories below are “hybrid case studies” from our succession planning consulting – no case represents a real company, as all details are disguised. We base these hybrid case studies on succession planning challenges and opportunities that we see again and again.
Mistake 1: Assume that succession management is “just an HR program” rather than a core senior management program.
Mistake 2: Fail to be flexible when flexibility makes better business sense.
Mistake 3: Try to do too much, too fast
Mistake 4: Suffer from internal myopia and assume “nothing will happen to our top people” and that succession planning is something only other companies need to do…. Read more..
