Spring Uganda

Health Tutors’ College Mulago (HTCM) with support from USAID/SPRING and the Ministry of Education and Sports, together with the Ministry of Health have designed The Anaemia Prevention and Control (APC) training package. The APC training package consists of a Module, a Learners Guide and a Trainers Manual. The APC training package will help in equipping Health Tutors and other Trainers in Clinical Practice with competencies in bridging the Anaemia Prevention and Control gaps. An estimated 41% of pregnant women and 27% of preschool children worldwide have anaemia caused by iron deficiency. Iron deficiency anaemia in early childhood reduces intelligence in mid-childhood; it can also lead to developmental delays and disability. About 18% of maternal mortality in low- and middle-income countries – almost 120,000 deaths – is attributable to iron deficiency. Forty per cent of the total attributable global burden of iron deficiency occurs in the South-East Asia Region and almost another quarter in the African Region. Although, from 2001 to 2011, Uganda has shown significant success in decreasing maternal and child anaemia, the anaemia prevalence among women of reproductive age (23 percent) and children below five years of age (49 percent) remains high.
