Micronutrient Supplements Can Improve Health, Survival Of Pregnant Women, Newborns

The Guardian: Supplements for pregnant women in Bangladesh to boost nutrition
Klaus Kraemer, director of Sight and Life

“…Two billion people worldwide live with a chronic shortage of vital micronutrients — a condition also known as hidden hunger. This public health crisis can have devastating health consequences — particularly for pregnant women and their children — and continues to negatively impact the growth and development of entire communities for generations. Micronutrient deficiencies are widespread in low-income countries, and pregnant women and children under two are especially vulnerable. … By ensuring pregnant women get the nutrition they need, we can improve the health and lives of millions of mothers and their newborns: a true win-win for global health” (3/9).
