This Global Alliance for Vitamin A (GAVA) consensus statement aims to provide guidance on vitamin A supplementation (VAS) for preschool-aged children* through campaigns and routine health and nutrition services during the COVID-19 pandemic. This guidance is not intended to replace national guidance. Rather, it serves as a consensus document based on GAVA’s review of WHO guidance for other services that use mass campaigns (e.g. vaccination) and routine health delivery platforms. The guidance will be amended as new information and evidence emerges.
