Iron Deficiency, Anemia and School Performance

Project Objectives

The project goals are to measure the effect of iron pills and access to information technology on educational outcomes of children in high-altitude rural Peru. Through a randomized design, the study varied both the encouragement and intensity of the treatments in order to tease out the mechanisms through which intervention uptake is highest.
