Haryana to carry out anaemia survey in November end


Chandigarh: Haryana will carry out a week-long survey to assess the prevalence of anaemia in November end.
The study aims to provide treatment and counselling for eligible subjects diagnosed with mild, moderate and severe anaemia.

The cross-sectional survey will be conducted in 60 clusters — 40 rural and 20 urban — in each district. As the urban composition of population is higher in Gurugram and Faridabad, the ratio would be reversed, i.e., 40 clusters will be urban and 20 will be rural.
In each cluster, 50 random samples will be taken from target groups. Thus, a total of 66,000 samples — 3,000 from each of the 22 districts — will be collected.
