Multi-sectoral Anemia Platforms Strengthening (MAPS)

SPRING supports country-driven efforts to sustain multi-sectoral anemia platforms, develop anemia related guidelines, and build capacity. SPRING has been documenting the anemia experiences in several countries (such as Ghana, the Kyrgyz Republic, Nepal, Sierra Leone, and Uganda), which provide unique insight into the challenges and successes of leading a coordinated response. The lessons learned in these countries can guide other countries embarking on a similar process.
