Helen Keller Intl launched programs to deliver vitamin A supplementation to children in the 1970’s. We have pioneered this important work worldwide. Vitamin A provides young children with a critical nutrient to build healthy immune systems and strong vision. Research shows that providing doses of vitamin A supplementation twice a year to children from six months to five years of age can reduce child mortality by almost a quarter. We now deliver vitamin A to millions of vulnerable children annually in twelve countries in West, Central, and East Africa.
