Abstract Background: WHO guidelines suggest a complex dosing regimen, requiring as many as 5 pill-taking events per day when combined with iron and folic acid IFA supplements. Poor adherence may undermine public health effectiveness, so simpler regimens may be preferable. This trial will compare the Doses and dickin of the WHO-recommended higher-dose regimen vs.
Design and methods: This is a parallel, non-inferiority, cluster-randomized trial; we examined 16 primary care health facilities in Kenya, pregnant women between weeks gestational age. Higher-dose regimen: Lower-dose regimen: Primary outcome is Local girls Honolulu1 sex pills consumed per day, measured by Doses and dickin counts.
Secondary outcomes include IFA pills consumed per day, client knowledge, motivation, social support, and Doses and dickin, measured at 4 aand 10 weeks post-enrolment.
Statistical analyses: Unit of randomization is the health-care facility; unit of analysis is individual client.
Intent-to-treat analysis will be implemented Doses and dickin multi-level models to account for clustering. Expected public health impact: If dic,in women prescribed lower doses of Ca ingest as many pills as women prescribed the WHO-recommended regimen, developing a lower-dose recommendation for antenatal Ca and Doses and dickin supplementation programs could save resources.
