Highlights

Anaemia is a major form of under-nutrition that pervades all life stages and is especially detrimental in children, adolescent girls and pregnant women.

Over the last decade, Odisha has done a lot of work to reduce the prevalence of anemia. This process documentation began in 2016 well before data emerged in NFHS-4 of the progress made in controlling anaemia in Odisha.

It intended to look deep into how NIPI was being implemented - its challenges and barriers - and strengthen anaemia control programming in the state based on knowledge. The document today takes on an added interest, a first step into analyzing the ingredients of successful programming that helped reduce anaemia and identifying barriers that we need to remove now to further accelerate the reduction of anaemia.
