Effectiveness and Cost-Effectiveness of Four Formulations of Food Supplements for the Prevention of Wasting and Stunting in Burkina Faso (FAQR-Burkina)
This research will serve as a follow-up on the review of Title II commodities performed by the Food Aid Quality Review at Tufts University in October 2011. The study in Burkina Faso will test the relative effectiveness and cost effectiveness of four supplementary foods in the prevention of MAM and stunting in normal programmatic settings.
The aims of this study are to:
- To compare the effectiveness of four alternative supplementary food commodities in preventing stunting and wasting, and promoting linear growth in children 6 - 23 months in the context of a preventive supplementary feeding program in Burkina Faso.
- To estimate the relative cost of implementing the supplementary feeding program using each commodity
- To estimate the relative cost/effectiveness of implementing the program using each commodity.
Dietary Supplement: CSB14
Dietary Supplement: RUSF1
Dietary Supplement: SC+
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Food Aid Quality Review Phase II Effectiveness Study: Preventing MAM and Stunting in Burkina Faso|
- Incidence of MAM and Stunting [ Time Frame: Monthly for 18 months ]
Primary outcomes to be measured are incidence of MAM and incidence of stunting during the 18 months of preventive supplementation (age 6 months to 23 months).
Stunting will be defined as less than -2 SD of Height-for-Age Z-score and MAM will be defined as less than -2 SD Weight-for-Height (length) Z-score

|Estimated Study Completion Date:||August 2017|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||August 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
