- Diagnostic Test: Anemia
Hemoglobin level will be used as the parameter for diagnosing anemia. The HemoCue system was used to estimate the concentration of hemoglobin in capillary blood. WHO guidelines for the diagnosis of anemia that were adopted by the Demographic Health Surveys will be used in this study. Briefly, a hemoglobin concentration of less than 70 g/L will be consider to define severe anemia, 70-99 g/L for moderate anemia, and 100-109 g/L will be presumed to correspond to mild anemia. The above-mentioned classification of anemia as "severe" "moderate" and "mild" categories is based on blood hemoglobin cutoffs (will be adjusted for altitude and smoking) recommended by the Center for Disease Prevention of United States; this classification has also been adopted by the World Health Organization.
- Anemia [ Time Frame: Baseline ]Blood hemoglobin level will be used as the parameter for diagnosing anemia.
