Anaemia in Women & Adolescent children is a very serious burden that India has been facing and the situation has worsened in the past 5-6 years across Indian States and Union territories(Ref: National Family Health Survey (NFHS) 2019-20, carried out by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.)

The National Nutrition Mission (POSHAN Abhiyan) aims to reduce anaemia prevalence in women and children by 3% per annum. However, there is an ongoing debate on the issues related to estimation of anaemia prevalence & strategies needed for anaemia reduction (

Lancet, the World Leading Medical Journal reveals  that despite increased food sufficiency and security in India, malnutrition continues to remain one of the most serious public health challenges. It also stated that Malnutrition was the leading risk factor for disease burden in India in 2017, with an anaemia prevalence of 60% in children younger than 5 years and 54% in women of reproductive age. (Ref: Lancet, report Published on July 2020 –“The burden of child and maternal malnutrition and trends in its indicators in   the  states of India”: the Global Burden of Disease Study 1990–2017. ( by Swaminathan S, Hemalatha R, Pandey A ,et al)

 Anaemia and its Symptoms:

MAYO CLINIC ,world ‘s one of the top  academic and  medical centre  has defined Anemia as  “a condition in which you lack enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your body’s tissues.”

This results in symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, dizziness and shortness of breath, amongst others.

Why is Anaemia so high in the country?

Anemia is a one such disease which has been a common problem in India  more due to the fact of malnutrition that has prevailed in  this nation for a long time.Among women, iron deficiency prevalence is higher than men due to menstrual iron losses and the high iron demands of a growing    foetus during pregnancies. (Ref1)

Lack of millets in the diet due to overdependence on rice and wheat, insufficient consumption of green and leafy vegetables, and dominance of packaged and processed foods which are low in nutrition could be the reasons behind the high prevalence of anaemia in India. (Ref2)

Nutritional anemia is a major public health problem in India and is primarily due to iron deficiency which is more common among rural population. (Ref3)
