The JiVitA Bangladesh Project: Research to improve nutrition and health among mothers and infants in rural South Asia

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

More than half of pregnant women in rural South Asia are likely to be affected by multiple micronutrient deficiencies  presumably arising from demands of pregnancy and lactation superimposed on diets chronically lacking in vegetables, fruit, and animal products . This same region also harbors risks of mortality that claim over 40% of all maternal and infant deaths in the world each year. Deficiencies in vitamin A, iron, folate and other nutrients can have deleterious effects on the health of mothers and their offspring and may account for substantial maternal morbidity and mortality in undernourished and underserved settings , yet much remains to be known about the efficacy of micronutrient supplementation in improving health and the public health approaches that optimize benefit, minimize risk and remain feasible and low cost.
