Control of Anaemia

All out efforts have been taken to combat anaemia.

Anaemia is a major public health problem in Bangladesh. As well as reducing the survival of mothers and children, anaemia lowers immunity; reduces growth, learning ability, work capacity and productivity; and contributes to low birth weight.

1. Integrated  and complementary approaches to anaemia prevention, to address the multiple causes of anaemia
2. Community-based and facility-based approaches to delivery of interventions
3. Behavioural change communication (BCC) to ensure that prevention and control of anaemia are given a high profile and accepted as important and necessary at all levels
4. Capacity building to assist and facilitate the health care system in programme planning, implementation, management, monitoring and evaluation at all levels.
5. Partnerships between all stakeholders, to reach all target groups with interventions.
