Anemia Screening and Treatment Outcomes of Children in a Low-Resource Community in the Dominican Republic

This study examined the effects of screening for anemia during well baby clinic visits and providing iron supplementation to anemic children in low-resource settings in the Dominican Republic. After reviewing health records, the authors found no relationship between children receiving iron during a previous wellness visit and improvements in anemia. They advocate further studies on quality of services and outcomes in health service settings.
