In many countries, VAS distribution is conducted alongside other health services, like deworming or screening for acute malnutrition. Considering GAVA’s operational guidance, can this still be done?

GAVA’s operational guidance is focused on the process of administering vitamin A capsules, but this does not mean that VAS must be delivered on its own. We recommend that VAS be co-delivered with other services. While our guide does not cover the logistics of handling the deworming tablet or conducting nutrition screening, many of the same infection prevention and control (IPC) measures apply when carrying out those activities.
