Many women throughout the world survive on diets of poor quality, and deficiencies in vitamins, minerals and trace elements are common in many developing countries. The effect of this poor nutritional status is a particular concern when the additional demands of pregnancy and lactation expose both the mother and her newborn infant to increased risk of adverse consequence.1 In response to this, the international community proposed about 10 years ago that a multiple micronutrient supplement be developed for widespread use as a dietary supplement during pregnancy.2 Since that time a number of large-scale randomised controlled trials have been carried out in which maternal supplementation with multiple micronutrients during pregnancy has been assessed for an effect on maternal mortality and morbidity, birth weight and later growth, morbidity and survival.
