Toward a Better Understanding of Adherence to Micronutrient Powders

Researchers from the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), the Research Triangle Institute, and Cornell University, conducted a study to examine the reasons for adherence to micronutrient powders (MNP). They generated factors drawn from previous studies that could influence adherence. These included: caregivers’ perceptions of positive change as a result of MNP use, their perceived child acceptance of food with MNP, and their forgetfulness. GAIN intends to incorporate these findings into their MNP programming in various countries.
