Vitamin and Mineral Nutrition Information System. The World Health Organization’s WHO most recent estimates suggest that anemia affects around million children and women.

Groups at highest risk include pregnant women, infants, and school age children. One efficient way to address lack of iron supply and bioavailability of iron in diets is iron fortification [34].

An intervention in rural Vietnam measured the effects of iron supplementation and iron fortified milk on the hemoglobin status of pregnant women. While there is substantial evidence of the effectiveness of iron fortification and supplements to reduce iron deficiency anemia, the benefits are hindered due to low usage of preventive health services in developing countries, lack of infrastructure and national political drive for larger scale fortification of popular local foods, and incomplete enactment of preventive treatments.

Daily iron supplementation during pregnancy Review. Studies have shown that iron fortification corresponds with the reduction of anemia prevalence [9][10].

This is an effective technique, including as a preventive method to reduce the likelihood of fisiopatolofia anemia in pregnant women [18]. Thus, countries where flour is an ingredient in staple foods, should adhere to WHO recommendations on levels of iron fortification in wheat and maize flour [29].

For example, the Food Fortification Initiative found evidence that suggests, but does definitively conclude, that anemia prevalence has significantly decreased in countries which utilize micronutrient fortification of flour while has not changed in countries that do not [9].
