BACKGROUND: Vitamin B-12 and folate deficiencies in women and children have important public health implications. However, the evidence is conflicting and limited on whether the influence of inflammation on biomarker concentrations may be sufficiently and consistently influenced by inflammation to require adjustment for interpreting concentrations or estimating population prevalence of deficiencies. OBJECTIVE: We examined correlations between concentrations of the inflammation biomarkers C-react...

Although prenatal iron-containing supplements have been associated with lower anemia prevalence in later pregnancy, few trials have examined the effect of supplements on the anemia status of post-partum women and their infants. We compared the effects of folic acid alone (FA), iron-folic acid (IFA) and multiple micronutrients (MMN) when provided to pregnant women with no or mild anemia on the hemoglobin levels of post-partum women and their infants at 6 and 12 months of age. We also examined the...

In 2009, the Ministry of Health of Kyrgyzstan launched a national Infant and Young Child Nutrition (IYCN) program which included point-of-use fortification of foods with micronutrient powders (MNP) containing iron, vitamin A, and other micronutrients. Caretakers of children aged 6–23 months were given 30 sachets of MNP every 2 months. Micronutrient surveys were conducted in 2009 and 2013. The objective of the study was to compare the prevalence of anemia and deficiencies of iron and vitamin A am...

Summary Background & aims Increasing evidence suggests that iron-containing multiple micronutrient may reduce the risk of pregnancy-induced hypertension including gestational hypertension or preeclampsia. We aimed to examine whether 30 mg iron plus folic acid or multiple micronutrients during pregnancy reduces the risk of pregnancy-induced hypertension. Methods We conducted a secondary data analysis by the dataset from a double-blind randomized controlled trial in China from 2006 to 2009 that wa...

Abstract This chapter provides an overview of monitoring and evaluation issues related to food fortification. It presents the foundational 2006 WHO/FAO monitoring and evaluation background for food fortification and briefly describes the principal components of regulatory and household/individual monitoring and evaluation (M&E). Additionally, these components are integrated within a systematic six step framework for M&E of food fortification programs. Ideally, the information generated by an M&E...

Background: In many settings, populations experience recurrent exposure to inflammatory agents that catalyze fluctuations in the concentrations of acute-phase proteins and certain micronutrient biomarkers such as C-reactive protein (CRP), α-1-acid glycoprotein (AGP), ferritin, and retinol. Few data are available on the prevalence and predictors of inflammation in diverse settings. Objective: We aimed to assess the relation between inflammation (CRP concentration >5 mg/L or AGP concentration >1 g...
