Six posters featured prevalence data and/or programs concerning reproductive-aged women. An assessment carried out in Ethiopia (W80), where nutritional ane- mia has not been widely recognized as a public health problem, found that 28.1% were anemic – 60% of cases were the result of iron deficiency. The most recent data from Mexico reveal that 15.5% of non- pregnant and 20.2% of pregnant women are affected by anemia (W82), notwithstanding the country’s sig- nificant gains in anemia control over the past decade. In Jharkhand, India, hemoglobin was measured among all health workers involved with the scale-up of ane- mia control efforts (W81). Approximately three-quar- ters of Auxiliary Nurse Midwives, 97% of Anganwadi workers and 91% of volunteers were anemic. This exercise proved important to educate health workers and has served as motivation for their work. In Uttar Pradesh, a qualitative evaluation of anemia control programming uncovered several barriers (W84), including: inadequate micro-planning, poor supply- chain management, unsystematic methods of identify- ing and following pregnant women, and multiple gaps in tracking IFA distribution/consumption. A final poster described the findings of a pre/post assessment in Lao PDR, supporting weekly IFA supplementation as a practical and effective preventive measure for school-aged girls and women of reproductive age (W85).
