WEEKLY IRON AND FOLIC ACID SUPPLEMENTATION

1. Introduction:

WIFS programme was launched on 15thJuly, 2013 for weekly administration of Iron & Folic Acid Supplements (WIFS) to all students from class 6th to 12th of Delhi Govt. and Delhi Govt. Schools.

2. Situation:

 Prevalence of Anemia in School Children of Delhi: Almost 36-50%.

3. Opportunities:

       To reduce the Prevalence of Anemia in School Children

       For overall benefit of Children & Society as a whole

4.      Programme:

       IFA Tablet is given weekly on every Wednesday

       Target : 13.82 lakhs Students of 6th to 12th Class  of all 1218 Govt. & Aided schools of Delhi

 5.      Reasons for Low Coverage

Coverage reflected through Online Reporting System of  Dte. of  Education is lower than  actual consumption because of  following reasons/ challenges:

o   All the schools not regularly reporting. Some schools are reporting number of tablets consumed in place of number of students

o   The current online reporting proforma of DOE does not  tap following  information:

   Number of students who consumed 1-3 tablets /month

   Number of students who refused IFA tablets

 6.      Action taken by SHS to Address Challenges

  • Login details of web portal provided to  District MOI/Cs of SHS to monitor and contact defaulting school nodal teachers to upload reports
  • Health Talks  by MO/PHN on day of  distribution of IFA tablets in class rooms and during Assemblies/PTMs
  • Request made to DOE: To issue instructions to HoS and amend the online reporting format to tap information on the No. of children who consumed < 1-3 IFA tabs in the month, or those who refused
