Anaemia is a public health problem that affects populations in both rich and poor countries and is associated with an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Anaemia is considered to exist in an adult when the hemoglobin levels are lower than 13 g/dL in males or 12 g/dL in females (WHO). In the developing countries, a value of lower than 10g/dL in both sexes is considered as Anaemia. Numerous factors such as infection and Haemoglobinopathies (non-nutritional anemia) contribute to causing anemia, but most importantly are the “nutritional anemias”.
