Approximately 100,000 Bhutanese of Nepali ethnicity, who are highly dependent on food relief and rations from the World Food Programme (WFP), live in seven refugee camps in southeastern Nepal. In light of the results of a 2007 survey conducted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which indicated a high prevalence of anemia (43.3%) and stunting (39.2%) amongst children aged 6–59 months, a comprehensive
micronutrient powder (MNP) program was initiated in 2008 to supplement the food rations in the camp.
