As the NIDs re-started, the Government of Bangladesh decided to integrate National Vitamin A-Plus Campaign (NVAC) with NIDs. With support from Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), Micronutrient Initiative, UNICEF, and WHO, the Government of Bangladesh will give Vitamin A capsule with polio vaccination during 1st round of 17th NID. It is a cost effective model for other countries that are struggling to achieve and maintain high coverage of vitamin A supplementation and polio vaccination. Vitamin A deficiency poses a major threat to the health and survival of children and mothers. It is now known that vitamin A deficiency increases the risk of child deaths from diseases such as measles and diarrhoea.

WHO | NEW YORK TIMES: What a little vitamin A could do Access Home Alt+0 Content Alt+2 Search Search Navigation Home About Our work News and events Knowledge centre Get involved Language عربي 中文 English Français Русский Español Menu News and events Press centre Newsletter Videos Social media NEW YORK TIMES: What a little vitamin A could do 13 MAY 2009 13 MAY 2009 | KOUNDARA, Guinea - I’m bouncing across West Africa in the back of a Land Cruiser with the winner of my “win-a-trip” contest, Paul Bowers, a student at the University of South Carolina, talking about wonky ways to tackle global poverty — such as vitamin A capsules. Americans pretty much take vitamin A for granted, but many of the world’s poorest people lack it. And as a result, it is estimated that more than half-a-million children die or go blind each year.There’s a simple fix: vitamin A capsules that cost about 2 cents each.

In real life situations, during temperature excursion and storage RUTF's are also at risk of being exposed to conditions over 400C which may further lead to degradation of vitamin A levels in the product. Vitamin A in Vitamin and Mineral Premix Vitamin A is one of the most chemically unstable vitamins and degrades in the presence of external factors including temperature, oxygen, humidity and lightxv,xvi . Exposure to these factors leads to degradation during its shelf life period. Vitamin A is widely used in RUTF by means of commercial vitamin & mineral premix. (...) Historical vitamin A supplementation of 100000 - 200000 IU given to SAM children routinely, provided justification for the expert group to consider increasing the maximum levels of vitamin A in RUTF to ensure that the revised daily vitamin A level of 5000IU (1.5mcg) is achieved.
