Building Adoptability for Multiple Micronutrient Supplements through Affordability

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) have been proven to be more effective than iron and folic acid (IFA) alone for improving the health of pregnant women and pregnancy outcomes in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).High-quality, USP-verified MMS is now also affordable and available at a price at par with IFA manufactured to a similar international quality. When manufactured at a volume of 3–5 million bottles, and packaged in 180-count bottles, MMS is available at a price of 1 US cent per tablet.Demand for MMS is increasing at unprecedented rates as interest in MMS grows. At present, however, manufacturing capacity is insufficient to meet existing – let alone future – demand.The time is now to ramp up production of a high-quality MMS product, while focusing on sustainability and the health of the market. Collective action is required to change the status quo and ensure that geography no longer determines accessibility.
