    The effectiveness studies reported herein achieved the goal of improving iron nutrition and reducing irondeficiency anemia through weekly iron-folic acid supplements
    voluntarily purchased and used by WRA. Availability and affordability of the product, accompanied by intensive social marketing and community mobilization,
    contributed to the success of these programs. The next step should be a review of all work done so far on weekly iron-folic acid supplementation, as well as the adoption
    and promotion by WHO, UNICEF, and the International Nutritional Anemia Consultative Group (INACG) of international guidelines for the use of weekly iron-folic
    acid supplementation in different settings, such as schools, factories, and the open market, to assist in the development, monitoring, and evaluation of national programs
    that include preventive supplementation as a new strategy.
