Author: SHALINI R, LAKSHMI K*, NEELIMA G , BHASKAR REDDY K
Abstract: This research investigates the prevalence of anemia and knowledge, attitude and practice on anemia among rural women of Chittoor district. The descriptive study was conducted in RVS Hospital, Chittoor among the women of reproductive age between 19-36 years. Socio demographic details and informed consent were obtained from the female respondents. All women were screened based on their haemoglobin and serum ferritin levels. The KAP questionnaire was designed using the FAO Guidelines and approved by Institutional Ethical Committee. This Questionnaire comprises a total of 16 questions, among which 5 are related to knowledge, 6 are related to attitude and remaining 4 are related to practice aspects. The results reveal that 53.5% of participants were aware of the causes and consequences of anemia. The overall findings of the study show the high prevalence of anemia.
