Segment 2: Discussion on Causes and Precations of Maternal Anemia

Maternal anemia, even moderate cases, increases the risk of dying during childbirth. The recent Lancet series on maternal and child under-nutrition estimated that 20% of maternal deaths are due to maternal iron-deficiency anemia and stunting in women, thus adding 115,000 deaths to the total maternal deaths from obstetric complications annually. However, despite these consequences, there is little attention given at global and country levels to the burden of maternal anemia. And have, therefore, failed to significantly reduce maternal anemia in developing countries.
