A benefit-cost analysis of nutritional interventions for anemia reduction (الإنجليزية)

Iron deficiency anemia is one of the most prevalent nutritional disorders in both the industrialized and less developed countries. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate potential interventions for reducing anemia with a benefit cost analysis. The study begins with a discussion of the origins and prevalence of anemia and proceeds to some of the consequences of anemia on work capacity, work output, learning, and other outcomes. Specific estimates are made of the effects of reducing anemia on work output. The results of the cost and benefit analysis are used to construct benefit cost ratios for evaluating the investment potential of anemia intervention. The overall conclusion reached is that benefit cost ratios appear to be large and field trials should be carried out in specific settings to see if the overall findings of this study are supported in particular cases.
