Excerpt
The controbof anaemia among women of reproductive age (15-49 years) is one of the priorities of the Safe Motherhood Initiative. This article presents the results of a study that was carried out to provide some of the information needed for an effective and sustainable programme to control anaemia in women of this age group in Burkina Faso. Iron-deficiency anaemia is the commonest nutritional deficiency worldwide, affecting mainly women and children. Its most serious consequences are the effects on the health of mothers and newborns, because pregnancyrelated anaemia is linked with a high risk of maternal and fetal deaths as well as an increase in low-birth-weight babies and perinatal mortality. The control of anaemia in women of child-bearing age is therefore a public health priority (I). The results of distribution of iron supplements to target populations - during pregnancy, for example - have been disappointing, especially in African countries (1, 2). One reason for this failure is the prevalence of anaemia among all women of child-bearing age and the limited effect of iron supplementation during the relatively short period of pregnancy. Other reasons are that in some areas the main cause of anaemia is malaria, the haemoglobinopathies and folate deficiency, which have to be addressed
