Mozambique Aflatoxin Study Complete
Data collection was completed in December 2018 for the “Evaluation of the Relationship Between Aflatoxin Exposure and Stunting in 10 Districts of Nampula Province, Mozambique” meeting the timeline goal. This project aims to assess the aflatoxin levels in children 6 to 59 months old in Nampula, as well as enumerate the association with stunting/height for age in the children. The project was conducted by Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition through buy-in support from the USAID mission in Mozambique, and by successful collaboration with Lúrio University (UniLúrio), the National Institute of Health (INS), the Association for Food and Nutrition Security (ANSA), and the University of Georgia. Data processing and analysis is underway.
