Updated in 2004 to include zinc deficiency as a significant public health issue. Enquête sur la carence en vitamine A / Madagascar This document presents a survey done in Madagascar to assess the extent of the vitamin A deficiency and anemia problems on a national scale. The survey was based on a national sample of 600 children aged 6 to 59 months and a sample of 300 women, ranging from 15 to 49 years of age. In addition, an investigation of anemia in the primary schools was conducted to assess the extent of the anemia problem in schoolchildren aged 6 to 14 years. The survey revealed that Vitamin A deficiency is a serious public health problem for children aged 6–59 months, as well as for women. It also shows that almost two of every five school children from the ages of 6 to 14 years is affected by anemia, making it an important public health problem among school age children.
