Project Completed

During its new phase of operations (2014-2018), HarvestPlus aims to scale up biofortification programs and establish new scientific evidence. Specifically, HarvestPlus seeks to extend its proof of concept from a single biofortified crop to a multiple-biofortified food basket approach. HarvestPlus is also expanding its programs to pregnant women and children 0-24 months of age to improve nutrition during the “1000-day window”. To better understand the potential impact of biofortified foods on these new target groups, GroundWork is conducting a comprehensive review and meta-analysis of single and multiple micronutrient supplementation and fortification interventions on birth outcomes, growth, anemia and micronutrient status among children of less than two years of age.
