Abstract

Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD) is a problem of public health significance in India. Clinical VAD is prevalent at two digit levels in some parts of the country. Night blindness from VAD is common among pregnant women especially during the later half of pregnancy. Nearly six lakh women die from child birth related disorders each year, a vast majority from complications which could be reduced by the provision of vitamin A. Prevalence of night blindness among pregnant women is a sure indicator of VAD among other age groups also in a particular geographic area.
