Cost-Effectiveness of Replacing Iron-Folic Acid with Multiple Micronutrient Supplements

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

The consumption of multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS) during pregnancy offers additional benefits compared with iron-folic acid (IFA) supplementation, but MMS tablets contain more ingredients and hence are likely to be more expensive.Replacing IFA with MMS in Bangladesh (assuming current rates of IFA coverage, 180 tablets per covered pregnancy and 100 percent adherence) could avert over 7,600 deaths and 16,000 cases of preterm birth annually.The estimated cost per death averted was ~US$183, and the estimated cost per disability-adjusted life year (DALY) averted ranged from ~US$3.50 to ~US$13.30, depending on whether the analysis accounted for subgroup effects.This policy change would cost-effectively save lives and reduce life-long disabilities.
