|Abstract:||Micronutrient deficiencies (MNDs) are a major public health problem in the developing world and particularly harmful during early childhood. The first 1000 days are crucial to establish a lasting foundation for health through adequate nutrition. We estimate the cost-effectiveness of price-based interventions with fortified powdered milk (FPM) for the reduction of iron and vitamin A deficiencies in 6-23-month-old Filipino children. We choose FPM because it appears to be the most appropriate carrier of MNs for 6-23 month old children. We limit our analysis to iron and vitamin A deficiencies based on findings of our systematic review.|
