BACKGROUND: More than a third of the world's children are infected with intestinal nematodes. Current control approaches emphasise treatment of school age children, and there is a lack of information on the effects of deworming preschool children.METHODOLOGY: We studied...

Using the school feeding system as a vehicle for micronutrient fortification: experience from South Africa.

Food and nutrition bulletin
