Technical Meeting: Use and Interpretation of Haemoglobin Concentrations for Assessing Anaemia Status in Individuals and Populations

From November 29 through December 1, 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland, the World Health Organization (WHO) will host a technical meeting regarding assessment of anemia status in individuals and populations using hemoglobin concentrations. The event is part of a larger four-year endeavor by WHO to review its guidelines for hemoglobin thresholds and definitions of anemia. The organization intends to advance the health systems of member states by drawing upon lessons learned from those states’ experiences in order to evaluate, prevent, and treat anemia more effectively.
