The Honduras Children’s Micronutrient and Deworming Project was a 3-year (July 2006–June 2009) project jointly implemented by Vitamin Angels (VA) and Cristo Salva. With the support of SIGHT AND LIFE, this campaign-style intervention sought to provide essential multiple micronutrient supplements (EMMNS) to children aged 2–14 years in selected schools in the northwestern region of Honduras. The children were given a daily supplement for an average of 180 days per year, which is the number of school days in the academic year. In addition, the children were given 400 mg of the deworming drug, Albendazole, twice a year. This project was designed as part of a larger Honduran Ministry of Health (MOH) rural health program that brings preventive and therapeutic care to the regions served by this project.
