This joint study from Harvard University and Nutrition International looks at three maternal nutrition interventions and their impact on offspring developing non-communicable diseases later in life.
MMS has shown to be just as effective as iron and folic acid (IFA) in preventing maternal anaemia and more effective at improving birth outcomes. The World Health Organization has recommended that implementation research be conducted in low- and middle-income countries considering a transition from IFA supplementation to MMS.
Implementation research provides insight into how to deliver proven interventions in the real world and identifies problems and barriers to effective implementation. This research is used to identify and investigate problems, and to develop and test solutions.
