According to the World Health Organisation (2016), more than 50 % pregnant women in India are anemic. Karnataka stands with more than 44.8% women who are iron deficient.
Doctors prescribe iron pills to help women meet their iron needs during pregnancy. Iron pills often taste bad, cause discomfort like constipation/nausea or are just forgotten, and are often disapproved by mothers/mothers-in-law as they are seen as medicine. Hence women frequently stop taking their iron pills during pregnancy. Every year over 11 million pregnant women have access to iron pills but do not take them (National Family Health Survey-IV, 2016). Regardless of where pregnant women live, how educated they are & what their wealth status is, only 39% took their iron tablets for 100 days or more.
