Anemia is a very common disease, during pregnancy where the percentages according to statistics of the World Health Organization in 2006 are as follows; (56%) of school-age children are anemic, (45%) of women in the age of pregnancy suffer from anemia, (38%) of pregnant women suffer from anemia, and (7%) of the Iraqi people suffer from Sickle Cell anemia and Thalassemia.

Regarding the importance of anemia, physicians recommend to make clinical routine tests (Pre – marital screening.) to figure out anemia, thalassemia, and sickle cell anemia and complete blood test.

Treatment of anemia in the community through the adoption of supplying flour with iron(Fortification of flour with Ferroussalt) and folic acid as is the case known in other countries.

The program of giving iron as a preventive or therapeutic treatment at schools should be for children and students aged 6-18 years and for women, in pregnancy and birth age, as weekly doses of iron in health centers. Also, each individual needs about 50 doses per year to children and women in the age of pregnancy and birth.
