Nutrition programmes, education help lowering anaemia in India

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Nov 13: Improved public health and nutrition programmes for children under five years of age, and higher education and wealth among expectant mothers substantially contributed to lowering anaemia among these two groups between 2006 and 2016, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) said.

Anaemia reduction among teenage girls and women under 50 years, however, showed minimal progress.

"More than half of the population of women and children in India is anaemic and is, therefore, currently experiencing reduced quality of life in various respects such as work capacity, fatigue, cognitive function, birth outcomes and child development," said Phuong Hong Nguyen, lead author and IFPRI researcher. - IANS
