Anemia Prevention Research Program
Anaemia, defined as a haemoglobin concentration below accepted cut-off levels, is a widespread public health problem with major consequences for human health as well as social and economic development. Estimates of the prevalence of anaemia vary widely and accurate data is not available, but in resource-poor settings significant numbers of young children and women of child bearing age are anaemic.
Though Anaemia is a major public health challenge, interventions to prevent and control are sporadic and short term – usually a 3 month course of iron tablets. Typically, once the treatment is complete, the haemoglobin level falls to below normal within a month or so.
Project Goals and Measures:
Sample: Treatment Group: 500 – Iron tablets + Education + Fortified food
