- DocumentInternational Initiative for Impact Evaluation, 2013This paper analyses the possible relevance of water and sanitation improvements for diarrhoea reduction in the context of Bangladesh. Much of the public policy thinking in the past was guided by public investment in providing improved access to water.DocumentInternational Initiative for Impact Evaluation, 2012Treating water can reduce the prevalence of diarrhoea by up to 70 percent. Although there are several inexpensive water treatment technologies available, statistics show that every 15 seconds a child dies due to waterborne diseases. Over 700 million people still lack access to safe drinking water.DocumentBMC Public Health, 2011Given the widespread prevalence of micronutrient deficiencies in developing countries, supplementation with multiple micronutrients rather than iron-folate alone, could be of potential benefit to the mother and the fetus.DocumentBMC Public Health, 2011Iron deficiency is the most prevalent nutrient deficiency in the world, particularly during pregnancy. According to the literature, anaemia, particularly severe anaemia, is associated with increased risk of maternal mortality. It also puts mothers at risk of multiple perinatal complications.Document

Effect of multiple micronutrient supplementation on pregnancy and infant outcomes: a systematic reviewPaediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology, 2012Supplementation with multiple micronutrients (MM) during pregnancy may result in improved pregnancy and infant outcomes. The study conducted meta-analyses of randomised controlled trials that evaluated the effects of prenatal supplementation with MM (defined as containing at least five micronutrients and typically included iron or iron and folic acid).DocumentJournal of Health, Population and Nutrition, 2011Diarrhoea is one of the most important causes of death in the world. Globally, more than 10 million children die each year, of which about 1.5 million die from diarrhoea. Diarrhoea and malnutrition are common in young children in developing countries, and a reciprocal relationship has been postulated between diarrhoea and malnutrition.Document
