Highlights

The Nepal National Micronutrient Status Survey (NNMSS) assessed micronutrient status among representative populations in Nepal, including specifically the status of vitamins A, iron, folic acid, iodine, zinc and the condition of anemia. To assess nutritional status and understand factors related to micronutrient status and anemia, the survey also collected information on anthropometry, infectious diseases (malaria, Soil Transmitted Helminths (STH), Helicobater Pylori (H. pylori), visceral leishmaniasis), blood disorders, and markers of inflammation. Additionally, the survey provided information on process and outcome indicators of priority for national supplementation and fortification interventions, and other key nutrition interventions in the country.
