Summary

Anemia is a condition in which people don't have enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to the body's tissues. District household survey in Ramnagara district in Karnataka by Government of India exposes 84.2% women, 82.6% of pregnant women were suffering from anemia. Unfortunately, most of them were not aware they are anemic and they need an intervention. This project intended to create awareness, detect and treat 1000 severe anemic women.

Challenge

Despite considerable health facilities growth in India, anemia is largely undiagnosed and untreated. Anemia adversely affects the health of infants, children, and women. Poverty, health and nutritional awareness are a major concern in this proposed area. Anemia in pregnant women leads to deliver a child with low birth weight, neurological and cognitive disabilities.

Solution

This project planned to 1. Detect and treat anemic women, 2 Increase the health and nutritional awareness and 3 Strengthen the self-help groups and village health and sanitation committee for sustainability. Increased awareness about anemia will help them concentrate on nutritious food and reach the hospital to seek the medical treatment.

Long-Term Impact

This project planned to strengthen the self-help groups and village health and sanitation committee for sustainability. These groups will promote the kitchen garden, nutritional awareness and awareness related to Government programmes like iron plus initiative. Beneficiaries of this project will also promote the importance of nutritional health.
