A generic theory of change-based framework with indicators for monitoring the effectiveness of large-scale food fortification programs in low- and middle- income countries

2023 Large-scale food fortification (LSFF) programs are widely implemented in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to alleviate micronutrient deficiencies. However, these programs may not achieve the desired impact due to poor design or bottlenecks in program implementation. Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) frameworks and a set of agreed indicators can help to benchmark progress and to …

Standard Operating Procedure: Qualitative Spot Test for Iron in Fortified Rice

Purpose: The purpose of this test is to quickly and inexpensively assess the presence of fortified kernels(containing iron) in fortified rice.In this test, reagents react with ferric (iron) ions to generate a dark brown‐red pigment. Thus, this test will not work on fortified rice using fortified kernels that do not contain iron. This is a …
