|Guidelines for the Use of Iron Supplements to Prevent and Treat Iron Deficiency Anaemia (International Life Sciences Institute, 1998, 46 p.)|
Beginning in 1998, UNICEF will offer iron/folate tablets with the formulation recommended in this report for pregnant women (60 mg iron + 400 µg folic acid).
Iron tablets with and without folic acid and iron elixirs are widely available in the commercial market place. Before initiating an iron supplementation program, a survey should be conducted to determine local sources of the required supplements. If appropriate products from reliable sources cannot be identified, contact INACG for information about supplements available in other parts of the world.
