Micronutrient Powders: Getting a Grip on Effective Implementation

GAIN Executive Director Lawrence Haddad eloquently summarizes the key issues related to operationalizing micronutrient powders (MNP), drawing on information from SPRING’s report on a global technical consultation on operationalizing MNP, published in the journal Maternal and Child Nutrition, and GAIN’s systematic review on MNP adherence, published in Current Developments in Nutrition. He notes that MNPs are still a complex programming challenge, and the inherent difficulties in designing and implementing effective programs are exacerbated by lack of feedback data from program evaluations.
