Given the clear evidence that antenatal multiple micronutrient supplementation (MMS) is superior to iron and folic acid supplementation (IFA) for improving pregnancy outcomes and preventing maternal anemia, Vitamin Angels (VA) and other stakeholders are exploring how to introduce and scale MMS for pregnant women effectively and efficiently in the context of the current World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines. VA’s global MMS campaign has made meaningful progress towards the introduction and implementation of MMS programs globally. Different approaches have been used by VA to balance the need to reach more women, especially the most vulnerable, with the long-term goal of ensuring effective introduction and scaling of MMS as a sustainable component of existing nutrition services.
