ANEMIA in India


Anaemia is a condition in which a person has an insufficient number of red blood cells (RBCs) in other words our body doesn’t have enough red blood cells (RBCs). RBCs contain hemoglobin, a protein that carries oxygen throughout  the body.

When we don’t have enough RBCs or the amount of hemoglobin in our blood is low, our body doesn’t get all the oxygen it needs.

There are many types and causes of Anemia, the most common causes of anaemia include nutritional deficiencies, particularly iron deficiency.  Human body needs iron to make hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells (RBCs) that carries oxygen.

Anemia prevalence across all ages is extremely high in India; varying from 30 percent to 69 percent. It is also to be noted that in the last 10 years  the percentage point reduction of anemia prevalence has been extremely low in most age groups.(Source: National Family Health Survey 4 (NFHS-4), 2015/16)

It is very sad and alarming that it still carries the highest burden of the disease despite having an anaemia control programme for 50 years in the country.

Anemia Mukt Bharat

Considering the  seriousness and gravilty of the anemia situation  in the country ,in 2018 , an elaborate   health program named Anemia Mukt Bharat under The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and UNICEF have been launched .

The  Anemia Mukt Bharat strategy has been designed to reduce prevalence of anemia by 3 percentage points per year among children, adolescents and women in the reproductive age group (15–49 years), between the year 2018 and 2022.

Present Situation as per recently published data of NFHS 5:(2019/21)

India is home to 253 million adolescents 10–19 years of age, among the largest cohorts globally. Limited nationally representative nutrition survey data exist for this age group. National Family Health Surveys (NFHS) cover only the 15- to 19-year age group and limited nutrition indicators. (Maternal & Child Nutrition,July 2022,Samuel Scott et al.) 

The fifth and latest round of the National Family Health Survey  has flagged a worrying trend: that the percentage of anaemic individual rose in India in the last five years. particularly among children and women.

The data in NFHS -5 (2019-21) show that among all age groups, the highest spike in anaemia was reported among children aged 6-59 months — 67.1 per cent from 58.6 per cent (NFHS-4, 2015-16).

This is followed by anaemia in females aged 15-19 years — 59.1 per cent (NFHS-5) from 54.1 per cent (NFHS-4). In both this group, too, the number is much  higher in rural areas  compared to urban India
