Zinc Saves Kids in Peru

  • 41.6% of Peru’s population is at risk of inadequate zinc intake, making it one of the high-risk countries
  • 18.3% of children under five are stunted. This prevalence rises to 32% in the rural areas reaching 37% in the poorest populations

Zinc Saves Kids in Peru supports undernourished children in Peru, where its main objective is to contribute to the improvement of child survival, growth and development, through the strengthening of national policies for the prevention and control of micronutrient deficiencies – with a special emphasis on zinc – and through supporting its implementation nationwide. The goal for this objective is to reduce by 15% the stunting in children under three years old in populations with high risk of zinc deficiency in the country. Zinc Saves Kids will initially be implemented in the districts of Apurimac, Huancavelica, Ayacucho, Cusco and Lima.
