Why we need Iron?

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

A recent perspective published by the scientific community indicates that iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) among Indian women is a problem of major public health significance. Data available at the National Family Health Survey (NFHS) shows that between 2005–2006 and 2015–2016, IDA in India decreased by only 3.5 percentage points for women aged 15–49 years. However, during the same period, of 27 states compared, IDA increased in eight: Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, Meghalaya, Tamil Nadu, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh (1). The perspective suggests on a concerted effort of community-level health workers along with food based strategies, food supplementation and improved health services can reduce the IDA among Indian women.
