Micronutrient Interventions

SPRING has been working to synthesize the evidence around implementation, and to conduct our own implementation research to improve micronutrient powder (MNP) delivery. We are studying the various channels that can be used to distribute MNP in health facilities and the community, and supporting industrial fortification efforts in Uganda. SPRING also hosts a variety of resources on micronutrients and child blindness from USAID’s flagship A2Z project that ended in 2011.
