Share this:

The NICHD initiated the Iron and Malaria Project to address the safe and effective use of interventions (such as iron supplementation) to prevent iron deficiency and related health problems in areas where malaria and other infections are common. The NICHD leads the Project with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and other partners, including the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements.

The Project is designed not only to support new research, but also to support efforts of other organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO), and other global health organizations to develop evidence-based programs and policies related to iron within the context of women’s, infants’, and children’s health in the United States and globally.
