The 2013 AzNS is the first nationally-representative micronutrient assessment survey in Azerbaijan. Conducted 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), the AzNS collected data on anthropometric and micronutrient status of children < 5 years, non-pregnant women 15-49 years, and pregnant women. The AzNS 2013 will provide a baseline assessment for Azerbaijan's national food fortification programme and other future nutrition programs. GroundWork LLC supported the AzNS by designing the survey protocol, developing the survey questionnaires, training phlebotomists, analyzing data and drafting the report.
