The 2013 Senegal Fortification Assessment Coverage Toolkit (FACT) survey was the first FACT survey conducted by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition. It is a nationally-representative cross-sectional survey. The aim of the survey was to determine whether women of reproductive age (15-49 years) and children (6-23 months), especially those at high risk of micronutrient deficiency, receive a meaningful contribution of iron and vitamin A from fortified wheat flour and oil, respectively. The results provide evidence of programme performance, identify programme barriers, and estimate potential for impact.
