Pro-vitamin A-rich cassava, developed by CIAT and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) as a contribution to the World Food Prize-winning HarvestPlus initiative, is helping tackle vitamin A deficiency, especially among women and children in Nigeria, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo).
