26th of November – Iron Deficiency Day

Despite affecting 1,5 billion people worldwide, iron deficiency remains underprioritized, underdiagnosed, and as a consequence an undertreated condition. Iron Deficiency Day, taking place annually on 26th November, aims to raise awareness on iron deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia the significant impact it can have on quality of life and to raise awareness on typical symptoms, in order to help people to recognise their condition and to seek help to highlight the importance of prevention.
