Multiple Micronutrient Powder (MNP) programs are being scaled up globally and present a golden opportunity for delivering preventive zinc to older infants and young children.
Upcoming IZiNCG research projects:
An effectiveness study of zinc supplements delivered through an existing child-health program (location to be determined)
An efficacy study of a zinc-fortified product consumed at household level on functional outcomes in pregnant women and their infants (location to be determined)
Evaluating existing dietary zinc and phytate assessment tools and developing new tools, if needed
