Abstract
Anaemia is the most common nutritional disorder worldwide. Anaemia accounts for a majority of the nutritional problem across the globe and it is principally engendered by deficiency of iron. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates anaemia as a major public health problem with almost 2 billion people having anaemia below normal values. One of the most common causes of anaemia is due to inadequate supply of nutrients. Poor eating habits play a major role in the development of iron deficiency anaemia that is an important indicator of poor health status. According to national family health survey (NFHS-4) conducted in the year 2015-2016, the prevalence of anaemia, among women aged 15-49 years is 53%. Anaemia results from one or more of the following process: defective red cell production, increased red cell destruction or blood loss. Women are the most vulnerable group of population due to different reasons. The present study was carried out to get a clear idea of the different degree of anaemia among the women adult females between the age group 18-50.The standard method for diagnosing anaemia is to measure the level of haemoglobin (Hb) in a person’s blood, low Hb levels indicate anaemia. Anaemia is a major public health problem among women. The prevalence was high among girls who were between 20-30 years of age. haemoglobin was estimated and the severity of anaemia i.e. mild, moderate, severe and absent were classified. Mild degree of anaemia was prevalent among the age group 20- 30 compared to the moderate and severe condition of anaemia.
