The the Accelerated Reduction Effort on Anaemia (AREA) Community of Practice (CoP) will hold a webinar on June 25 to discuss anaemia programs post COVID.
From the website announcement:
“In 2012, world leaders committed to halving anaemia prevalence in women by 2025. The World Bank and its partners estimate that to meet this target, the world will need to invest $12.9B billion on top of current funding in the next 10 years. If achieved, the outcomes would be enormous: 265 million cases of anaemia prevented, 799,000 lives saved and hundreds of millions on earnings.
Progress towards achieving the target has been slow, and the epidemics of COVID-19 is harming both the health and food systems in unthinkable ways a few months ago.
Is there a way forward? What to do to keep anaemia prevention as a priority in the resilience agenda of countries and donors?”
