Composition of a multi-micronutrient supplement to be used in pilot programmes among pregnant women in developing countries

The aim of this technical workshop was to propose the composition of a multi-micronutrient supplement (MuMS) for pregnant women from developing countries to be used in effectiveness trials in pilot countries. A secondary issue for consideration at the workshop was the suitability of such a supplement for other groups at risk. This report is commonly used as the basis for the United Nations International Multiple Micronutrient Antenatal Preparation (UNIMMAP) formulation.
