The goal of A2Z: The USAID Micronutrient and Child Blindness Project is to increase the use of key micronutrient and blindness interventions to improve child and maternal health. The technical focus areas of the project are vitamin A supplementation for children under five and newborns, anemia reduction in pregnant women and children, food fortification, and zinc treatment for diarrhea.

The expected results of the project are large-scale, sustainable vitamin A supplementation programs, anemia control, expansion of food fortification, and integration of effective approaches, tools, and data collection into national strategies and multiple program platforms.
