Understanding Anemia: Guidance for Conducting a Landscape Analysis

Next Steps and Resources

USAID’s Integrated Anemia Prevention and Control Toolkit on the Knowledge for Health website provides a three-step process to address anemia in your country:

  1. Know the problem. Encourage colleagues to participate by downloading and sharing Anemia Landscape Analysis Guidance (PDF, 3 MB).
  2. Raise awareness and develop partnerships. Share with key stakeholders the landscape analysis you developed while following this guidance and the summary dashboard of the Excel-based Anemia landscape analysis tool with key stakeholders to help them understand the anemia situation. SPRING’s website has examples of anemia landscape analyses that you can use as examples of how to organize a landscape analysis and it suggests additional information for you to include.
  3. Identify interventions and implementation plans. Use your data on anemia causes and programs to inform planning discussions around anticipated results, interventions, and implementation. SPRING’s website has examples of country anemia strategies that may help you plan a multi-sectoral anemia prevention and control strategy.

Other tools and resources from SPRING

Explore anemia data. See if one of SPRING’s anemia profiles has information on the anemia situation in several countries.

Go into more detail. Use SPRING’s DATA tool to conduct a review of the anemia burden and programming at the subnational level.

Establish a national anemia working group. Use one of SPRING’s national anemia platform case studies to bring stakeholders together.
