Risk factors for iron deficiency anaemia in preschool children in northern Ethiopia


Risk factors for iron deficiency anaemia in preschool children in northern Ethiopia

A cross-sectional study of 2080 children aged 6-60 months from Tigray province, northern Ethiopia, was performed to determine risk factors for Fe-deficiency anaemia. Anaemia was highly prevalent (42%) and constituted an important nutritional problem in the region. In a sub-sample of 230 anaemic children, 56% had a low red blood cell count and 43% had a serum ferritin of <12 micro g/litre indicating that the anaemia was largely due to Fe deficiency.
