Supporting biochemical analysis component of multinutrient powder and homestead food production research studies in Burkina Faso and Tanzania

Project Completed

While interventions promoting home gardens and strengthening nutrition education (commonly referred to as homestead food production projects) are implemented in many countries, their ability to sustainably improve the anemia and iron status of young children requires further evidence. To address this knowledge gap, GroundWork is providing logistic and training support to two research studies investigating the nutritional impact of multinutrient powders (aka Sprinkles) and enhanced homestead food production in Burkina Faso and Tanzania. Specifically, GroundWork is managing the procurement of specialty supplies for the collection and processing of blood samples and training phlebotomists prior to the commencement of the research studies.
