Iron Deficiency, Anemia and School Performance

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.
