Helen Keller International (HKI) is supporting local vitamin A supplementation (VAS) days in Senegal as part of the organization’s commitment to high and sustained vitamin A coverage as a means of enhancing maternal and child health. In collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through its BASICS and MOST programs, and with UNICEF through funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and Micronutrient Initiative (MI), HKI organized local VAS days that took place during July and August throughout Senegal’s 56 health districts. As part of the communication plan to promote awareness of the VAS days in the districts, HKI developed a radio spot that was aired in both French and Wolof, the most widely spoken languages in the country. The broadcast ran nationally four times a day for two weeks on several popular radio stations. In addition, HKI introduced a vitamin A logo, shown below and worn by volunteers, and posters advocating VAS, breastfeeding, and daily consumption of vitamin A rich foods. At the end of this first round of local VAS days, HKI plans to conduct a survey, funded by USAID, to determine levels of coverage.
