Documents included in this toolkit have been identified by members of the USAID Advancing Nutrition Anemia Task Force. The Anemia Task Force members are experts in fields of study related to various aspects of anemia - biology, its assessment, interventions to reduce its burden, and the enabling environment that influences anemia policies and programs. The included resources have been selected for their utility in understanding anemia and relevant to actions that can be taken to reduce it.

This toolkit will be updated on a rolling basis – for inquiries or suggestions for resources to add, please contact info@advancingnutrition.org.

Predictors of Anemia in Women of Reproductive Age: Biomarkers Reflecting Inflammation and Nutritional Determinants of Anemia (BRINDA) Project
Journal Article published by The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in
This study used data from 10 cross-sectional, nationally representative data to assess the associations between anemia and multiple proximal (e.g., iron and vitamin A deficiencies, inflammation, malaria, and body mass index) and distal risk factors (e.g., education status, household sanitation and hygiene, and urban or rural residence) in…
Predictors of Anemia in Preschool Children: Biomarkers Reflecting Inflammation and Nutritional Determinants of Anemia (BRINDA) Project
Journal Article published by The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in
This study used cross-sectional data from 16 surveys to evaluate predictors of anemia in preschool children (6-59 months of age) by country and infection-burden category. Findings indicate that iron deficiency, malaria, breastfeeding, stunting, underweight, inflammation, low socioeconomic status, and poor sanitation were each associated with…
The Proportion of Anemia Associated with Iron Deficiency in Low, Medium, and High Human Development Index Countries: A Systematic Analysis of National Surveys
