DEFINING THE IMPACT OF UNIVERSAL IRON INTERVENTIONS IN YOUNG CHILDREN: A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL IN RURAL BANGLADESH
Grant number: 1103262 | Funding period: 2016 - 2022
Although nearly half of the world's young children are anaemic, evidence regarding the best approaches to correct this problem are limited. New data even suggests that the conventional approaches (iron supplements, multiple micronutrient powders) may even be harmful. We will perform the definitive trial which will confirm the existence and magnitude of any benefit (and harm) from these interventions in young Bangladeshi children. This trial will inform global policy on anaemia control.
