anaemia, haemoglobin, nutrients, girls, health, awareness


In the case of anaemia, the amount of haemoglobin in the blood becomes very less than normal (5-9 grams per 100ml of blood), which reduces the ability of the body’s cells to take up oxygen. As a result, the cells do not get enough oxygen. In India, 86.0% of girls are suffering from anaemia in 2019-20 and Bihar, 63.6% of girls are suffering from anaemia according to NFHS. The main reason for the study is that India has the largest number of anaemia in girls. Anaemia is considered an important health problem because of the adverse effects on mental and physical development during a girl’s development. General information and awareness about health were substantiated by a majority (69%) of the young girls being aware of anaemia. But awareness about health consciousness and nutritional supplement is still lagging at less than half the percentage.
