Characterized by reduction in hemoglobin concentrations or the size and color of red blood cells, which impairs the ability to supply oxygen to the body’s tissues. Anemia is caused by inadequate intake and/or poor  absorption or excessive losses of iron, folate, vitamin B12 and other nutrients. It can also be caused by infectious diseases (inflammation) such as malaria, hookworm infestation and schistosomiasis, and by genetic variants of hemoglobin. Women and children are high-risk populations. Clinical signs include fatigue, pallor (paleness), breathlessness and headaches.
