UNICEF ambassador Priyanka Chopra promotes Anaemia Prevention

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Priyanka Chopra, recently interacted with a group of adolescent in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, and discussed important issues affecting their lives including nutrition and, particularly, ways to prevent anaemia.

"Anaemia is a big problem that young girls and boys are facing across the country but it is one that has a simple, workable solution. Iron Folic Acid (IFA) tablets once a week and de-worming tablets every six months. It really is that simple." stated Priyanka Chopra after showing her appreciation for being able to spend quality time with the group of adolescents in the City of Lakes.

"A major symptom of Anaemia is fatigue, which not only impacts the physical but also mental potential of young people across the country. The IFA tablets are a simple solution and one that is available across the country due to the consistent efforts of the Government of India and UNICEF. We need to create awareness about the effects of Anaemia and also how easy and effective the treatment is. Overall, this can have a huge and long-lasting impact on this generation of girls and boys and in the generations to come. The young generation of today is our future and in order for them to realize their full potential, they need to not only understand the importance of good health but also be aware of what is available to aid them in that process. We need to plant the seeds of that knowledge right here and right now," adds Priyanka Chopra.
