The present study allowed an assessment of the status of the fortification of vegetable oils and wheat flour in Côte d'Ivoire. It has deployed a scientific device that combines a survey of the target of the fortification, the Ivorian population, with a sampling of the oils and flours consumed by it, and with laboratory analyses to evaluate the adequate fortification, resulting in a baseline estimate of the coverage and consumption of fortified vehicles. At the national level, a total of 2,850 households were surveyed in October / November 2009, arbitrating about 21,000 people, or about 1 per thousand of people living in Côte d'Ivoire.
The main objective of this study was to evaluate the consumption coverage of iron-fortified wheat flour and folic acid and vitamin A-enriched vegetable oil in Côte d'Ivoire.
