Highlights

The 2013 AzNS was conducted between February and April, 2013 by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the State Statistical Committee of Azer­baijan, and the Azerbaijan office of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). It collected data on anthropometric and micronutrient status of children < 5 years, non-pregnant women 15-49 years, and pregnant women.

This report provides estimates of the prevalence and severity of key nutritional deficiencies derived from the first nation­ally-representative micronutrient assessment survey in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan has begun planning for a national food fortification programme, and the AzNS 2013 can provide a baseline assessment for it.
