Webinar: Cost-effectiveness of anaemia prevention interventions
23 January 2020, from 15:00 to 16:00 CET
Right in the middle of the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition (2016-2025), and as countries make commitments towards achieving UHC, all policy-makers will be confronted with the same question: which interventions should be included in the national health system?
This requires careful prioritization across all potential health interventions and maximizing health outcomes within the available budget. Countries are encouraged to prioritize health interventions that are both cost-effective and serve the poorest and most vulnerable groups first so that no one is left behind.
Many nutrition interventions, including supplementation in pregnancy and food fortification, are highly cost-effective to prevent disease and mortality.
This webinar is organized by the Accelerated Reduction Effort on Anaemia (AREA) Community of Practice (CoP).
