Micronutrient Supplementation Program

The high prevalence of malnutrition is a significant problem that the country still faces. Micronutrient deficiencies, which is the primary cause of malnutrition, are known to cause intergenerational consequences especially to young children. Factors such as maternal nutrition and access to healthcare before, during, and after pregnancy critically affect the growth and development of their children. Moreover, the first years of their infants are crucial in creating strong health foundations. Hence, this program aims to provide supplementation and nutrition programs for pregnant mothers, infants, and children to reduce the prevalence of micronutrient deficiencies below public health significance.
