Abstract

Iron deficiency anaemia adversely affects transport of oxygen tissues and results in diminished work capacity and physical performance. During adolescents, iron deficiency anaemia can result in impaired physical growth, poor cognitive development, reduced physical fitness and work performance and lower concentration on daily tasks. Iron deficiency in adolescents' girls influences the entire life cycle. Objective: This study aimed at assessing nutritional anaemia of adolescent girls of rural areas of Banka District receiving the benefits of the nutritional intervention and IFA Supplementation of SABLA/SAG yojana under the ICDS and other related schemes. Method: Anthropometry measurement, services of SABLA programme, test of haemoglobin level, SABLA Kishori Card, Iron Folic Acid (IFA) supplementation process and status Observation & Questionnaire method were used as tools.
