Anaemia among Egyptian adolescents: prevalence and determinants
El Sahn, F. ( 2000 )
Abstract

We aimed to estimate the nationwide prevalence of anaemia among adolescents in Egypt and to study possible risk factors. A cross-sectional approach was used. Blood samples were collected from 1980 adolescents for haemoglobin estimation. The overall prevalence of anaemia was 46.6%, most of which was mild or moderate, with severe cases in less than 1.0% of the sample. Gender difference was almost nonexistent. A significant inverse relationship was observed between the level of anaemia and age [especially among boys], socioeconomic level and educational level. Anaemia was more prevalent in rural areas and in Upper [southern] Egypt. Anaemia is a major public health problem among Egyptian adolescents and wide-scale public health education is warranted

Anaemia among schoolchildren in Qena Governorate, Upper Egypt
Barduagni, P.; Ahmed, A.S.; Curtale, F.; Raafat, M.; Mansour, E. ( 2004 )
Abstract

A study was carried out during January/February 2001 in Deshna and Armant Districts of Qena Governorate, Upper Egypt, to establish the prevalence of anaemia among schoolchildren aged 6 to 11 years and define appropriate control interventions in the area. Haemoglobin levels were measured directly in schools using a portable spectrophotometer. The mean [SD] level of haemoglobin in 1844 schoolchildren in 37 schools was 12.79 [1.15] g/dL. Only 12% of children were below the WHO cut-off for anaemia for this age group [< 11.5 g/dL] and no cases of severe anaemia [< 7.0 g/dL] were detected. The low prevalence of mild to moderate anaemia indicates that mass iron supplementation is not justifiable, but routine monitoring of haemoglobin levels should be part of the public health activities in the schools

Anaemia among young male workers in Alexandria, Egypt
Curtale, F. ( 2000 )
Abstract

In a cross-sectional survey, we investigated exposure to and the presence of factors associated with anaemia, such as socioeconomic conditions, dietary habits, intestinal parasitic infections and lead among 355 young male workers [7-19 years of age] employed in private workshops. Of the total study sample, 44.5% [158 participants] were found to be anaemic. The major risk factors for anaemia were multiple parasitic infection, high intensity of parasitic [Ascaris lumbricoides] infection and drinking tea soon after a meal. A significantly lower prevalence of anaemia was noted after Ramadan; it appeared to be the main factor associated with the presence or absence of anaemia and warrants further attention

Anaemia in the Eastern Mediterranean Region
Verster, Anna; Vander Pols, Jolieke C. ( 1995 )
Abstract

lron deficiency anaemia is a serious worldwide public health problem, having negative effects on work capacity, intellectual performance and pregnancy, apparently irreversible by subsequent iron therapy. In the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean Region [EMR], the prevalence of anaemia in women and preschool children is high [2 - 60%]. Anaemia in the EMR has many causes, such as low bioavailabitity of the iron consumed, high consumption of inhibitors of iron absorption, child-bearing patterns and parasitic infections. There is an urgent need for all countries in the Region to Control lron deficiency and anaemia; sultable strategies are discussed

Anaemia prevalence and associated sociodemographic and dietary factors among Palestinian adolescents in the West Bank
Mikki, N.; Abdul Rahim, H.F.; Stigum, H.; Holmboe Ottesen, G. ( 2011 )
Abstract

Anaemia still persists among children and women of childbearing age in Palestine. We investigated the prevalence of anaemia and associated factors among Palestinian school adolescents [aged 13-15 years] in Ramallah and Hebron governorates. Haemoglobin levels were measured to assess the prevalence of anaemia. The prevalence of anaemia was significantly higher in Hebron than in Ramallah among boys [22.5% versus 6.0% respectively], while among girls the figures were similar [9.2% and 9.3% respectively]. Linear binomial regression analysis showed that among boys, anaemia was independently associated with residence in Hebron and higher standard of living, while among girls, anaemia was associated with higher father's education. Consumption of iron-rich foods, as recorded in food frequency questionnaires, had no significant effects on anaemia prevalence in both boys and girls
