In 2014, a Fortification Assessment Coverage Toolkit (FACT) survey was conducted across the state of Telangana, India. The main objectives of the survey were to:
- Determine the coverage of the take-home rations produced by AP Foods among target children.
- Identify the major programme barriers and formulate recommendations for future programme activities.
In addition, the survey collected information on current and potential large-scale food fortification programmes to:
- Assess state-wide household coverage of iodised salt.
- Investigate the potential for rice fortification based on purchase and consumption patterns.
The results provide evidence of programme performance and identify programme barriers.
