To address the increasing prevalence of anemia in pregnancy, the Wellbeing Foundation Africa, led by H.E. Mrs. Toyin Saraki, participated in the Knorr/Unilever Nutrition Symposium on the 15th of May 2015. With approximately 2 billion people across the globe suffering from nutrition deficiencies, iron deficiency has the biggest impact on public health, with Nigeria facing one of the largest burdens in this regard - where an estimated 1 in 2 women of reproductive years (15-46) and 72% of children under 5 years of age are anaemic.
