This review examined the current burden of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in India, its epidemiology, and the various issues regarding its prevention and control. The authors conclude that IDA remains a major health concern that underscores the need to strengthen existing programs. The authors suggest tackling IDA through multifactorial and multisectoral approaches; assertively adopting a lifecycle approach; improving community-level nutrition knowledge; and promptly diagnosing and treating of infections.
