The goal of the BRINDA collaboration is to produce more accurate estimates of global micronutrient status.

The BRINDA collaboration includes 31 datasets from countries across the globe. All national or subnational representative datasets include measures of 1) hemoglobin; 2) CRP and/or AGP;  and 3) at least one nutrition biomarker (iron, vitamin A, folate, B12, and zinc) for women of reproductive age (WRA) and preschool age children (PSC).

Countries with Datasets:

Bangladesh, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Colombia, Georgia, Kenya, Laos, Liberia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Philippines, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, US, Ecuador, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Mongolia, Vietnam, Malawi, Azerbaijan, UK, Burkina Faso, India, Nigeria, Rwanda, Zambia
