Global nutrition targets 2025: anaemia policy brief

Global nutrition targets 2025: anaemia policy brief

In 2012, the World Health Assembly Resolution 65.6 endorsed a Comprehensive implementation plan on maternal, infant and young child nutrition, which specified six global nutrition targets for 2025. This policy brief covers the second target: a 50% reduction of anaemia in women of reproductive age.

The purpose of this policy brief is to increase attention to, investment in, and action for a set of cost-effective interventions and policies that can help Member States and their partners in reducing the rates of anaemia among women of reproductive age.
