Micronutrient deficiencies are major contributors to morbidity and mortality among women and children in the developing world. This Micronutrient Update, which continues where the May 2002 Micronutrient Update left off, presents information on women and children from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) conducted between 2000 and 2005.

Indicators and Methods for Cross-Sectional Surveys of Vitamin and Mineral Status of Populations  155 pages 1.3mb
Micronutrient Initiative and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies remain a significant public health problem in many parts of the world, particularly in developing countries where deficiencies to vitamin A, iron, iodine and other micronutrients leads to adverse health consequences. These include diminished learning and development capacity of young children and reduced work capacity of adults, both of which contribute to poor socioeconomic condition of populations. The implementation of effective intervention programs to eliminate or reduce the prevalence of vitamin and mineral deficiencies in populations requires a wide array of activities directed towards ensuring high coverage of interventions. One component of national micronutrient programs includes the periodic assessment of the status of vitamin and mineral deficiencies, as well as the adequacy of the coverage of interventions in a population using cross-sectional surveys.
