Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A nationwide "vitamin D prophylaxis augmentation program" initiated in 2005 in Turkey reduced prevalence of rickets from 6% in 1998 to 0.1% in 2008 in children under age 3 year. Program included free distribution of vitamin D drops to all newborns and infants (0-12 months) visiting primary health stations throughout the country. We conclude that free disposal of vitamin D to infants is an effective strategy for preventing Vitamin D deficient rickets.
