SPRING Develops New National Anemia Profiles Providing a Snapshot of Country Anemia Landscapes
At the end of June, SPRING released new National Anemia Profiles for Bangladesh, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, and Sierra Leone and updated the current profiles for Ethiopia, Ghana, and Peru. Each profile provides a snapshot of a country’s anemia situation, including data on the anemia burden, as well as the policy environment and coverage of important prevention and control efforts, including deworming, malaria prevention, and infant, child, and maternal nutrition. The profiles highlight the importance of a multi-sectoral approach for anemia reduction and advocate for coordination of efforts across sectors.
