Towards eliminating anemia in the high Andes : linking social protection with agriculture and nutrition interventions for scaling : “zero anemia”
The Zero Anemia project developed a conceptual framework for scaling agriculture and nutrition interventions by linking with social protection programs and other local partners. The innovation package included iron and zinc biofortified potato varieties, nutritional education strategy and communication materials, as well as institutional coordination with social protection programs and local partners. The COVID-19 health crisis and associated quarantine measures have had striking impacts on malnutrition indicators with an increase of anemia to 54.2% in Curgos and 66.4% in Julcán, according to the Health Care System in Peru. The report provides a detailed look at the study and pilot project.
