30 Million Children under 5 years old are at risk of VADD
Vitamin A Deficiency Disorder (VADD) is a devastating disease affecting millions of India's undernourished infants and children.
The ravages of this disease leave children anemic and are a major cause of blindness and childhood death.
With your purchase you will provide children and their nursing mothers with adequate amounts of vitamin A to protect them from this disease.
Improving the vitamin A status of deficient children through supplementation enhances their resistance to disease and can reduce mortality from all causes by approximately 23%. Guaranteeing high supplementation coverage is therefore critical, not only to eliminating vitamin A deficiency as a public-health problem, but also as a central element of the child survival agenda. Delivery of high-dose supplements remains the principal strategy for controlling vitamin A.
