Survey Toolkit to Assess and Monitor Nutrient Deficiencies

The Micronutrient Survey Toolkit includes resources to help assess and monitor vitamin and mineral deficiencies. It will keep you from having to create new tools for every survey. Sample topics include a laboratory overview, data and sample collection procedures, supplies needed, and guidance for hiring personnel. Each module includes tools that can be used as needed and examples of the tools used in different contexts.

The Micronutrient Survey Toolkit was developed by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) International Micronutrient Malnutrition Prevention and Control Program (IMMPaCt). The toolkit provides resources collected from many sources and new tools that were created to fill gaps.

The toolkit can either be used by itself or in conjunction with the manual, Indicators and Methods for Cross Sectional Surveys of Vitamin and Mineral Status of Populations, which is also included in the manual module of the toolkit.
