|Abstract:||Micronutrient deficiencies (MNDs) are a major public health problem in the developing world and particularly harmful during early childhood. We estimate the cost-effectiveness of price-based interventions with fortified powdered milk for the reduction of MNDs in 6-23-month-old Filipino children. The estimation is based on a survey and marketing experiment, combined with the results of a systematic review on the efficacy of food fortification and a model of lifetime cost-consequences of MNDs. We find that interventions specifically targeting poor households are more cost-effective because of the higher prevalence of MNDs, lower levels of current consumption and higher price elasticity of demand.|
