New Study: Improvement in Education and Wealth - Key to Anemia Reduction Among Expectant Mothers and Children in India

Washington D.C.: Improved public health and nutrition programs for children under five years of age, and higher education and wealth among expectant mothers substantially contributed to lowering anemia among these two groups in India between 2006 and 2016, according to the findings of a new study conducted by the researchers at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). Anemia reduction among teenage girls and women under 50 years, however, showed minimal progress.
