Access to the right nutrients during the first 1,000 days of life – during pregnancy and through the first two years – is critical to a mother’s health as well as the healthy growth and development of a baby.
So, together with Vitamin Angels, our goal is to annually reach up to 4 million underserved pregnant women and their babies with a daily Multiple Micronutrient Supplementation (MMS), which contains the essential vitamins and minerals they need.
The work doesn’t stop there. We are also developing a supportive nutrition education curriculum with Vitamin Angels and other partners to empower healthcare professionals and pregnant women in underserved communities.
The initiative begins in Indonesia, Mexico, Vietnam and will roll-out to over 50 countries around the globe, including Cambodia, Philippines, Thailand, India in Asia.
