Hundreds of sick children in northeastern India – that was the “effect” of vitamin A tablets supplied by UNISEF philanthropists. Concentrated dozes of the vitamin were recommended by specialists of the UN Children’s Fund in the framework of the fight against blindness. Such treatment caused vomiting and a sharp fever in many patients. The number of sick children reached one and half thousand, and nine of them died. Now, it is necessary to find out who is guilty of this, doctors or pharmacists. In addition, the authorities of Indian state Assam are planning to bring an action against workers of UN Children’s Fund.
