Bulletin of the World Health Organization - Impact of Nutrition Education and Mega-dose Vitamin A Supplementation on the Health of Children in Nepal, WHO. URL-http://apps.who.int/iris/ Historically, vitamin A deficiency (VAD) has occurred worldwide, but it now appears primarily to be present in certain developing countries.a The importance of vitamin A to the health and visual acuity of children has been known since the 1920s (1, 2), but only in the last decade has it become clear that as many as 1-3 million deaths can be prevented through effective community VAD control programmes (3). Policy-makers in countries with VAD are now considering the most appropriate approaches to reduce and control this public health problem. During discussions between the implementing agencies and donors on how to set up a national VAD control programme in Nepal, many alternatives were reviewed and each agency and organization proposed a slightly different solution. Several of the proposed pilot control activities were eventually selected for field testing.b The two activities reviewed here are vitamin A supplementation and nutrition education, which included horticultural and public health activity approaches.
