New Evidence Should Inform WHO Guidelines on Multiple Micronutrient Supplementation in Pregnancy

This report corrects and updates the subgroup analysis based on which World Health Organization (WHO) Antenatal Care (ANC) Guidelines 2016 indicated an increased risk of neonatal mortality thus resulting in confusion about the best course of action for public health programs. Based on the new evidence provided in this report, WHO is recommended to review their statements regarding the potential neonatal mortality risks and re-evaluate the overall potential benefits of implementing Multiple Micronutrient Supplementation (MMS) as a public health program.
