This Health and Development Programming Integration Toolkit is an online...

      Anemia is one of the most prevalent public health problems in the world, affecting 42% of pregnant women (56 million) and 47% of children younger than five years of age (293 million). There are three major causes of anemia: inadequate dietary intake of micronutrients, particularly iron, and malaria and helminth infections in some areas of the world. Currently, interventions to address these causes are not operating at-scale in most countries due to lack of interest, funding, and effective management. Implementing these interventions at-scale in developing countries could have...

    The intrauterine device (IUD), a small, flexible plastic frame that a specifically trained provider inserts into a woman’s uterus, provides very effective, safe, and long-term—yet quickly reversible—protection from pregnancy.

This Toolkit is for health policy makers, program managers, and service providers who are...
