Hb is a social technology for diagnosing and reducing the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in schools.
Social technology was developed by IPTI researchers and professionals from the Health and Education departments of Santa Luzia do Itanhy, seeking to generate a solution that would fit the municipality's technical and financial capacity.
Hb technology has been shown to reduce the prevalence rate of iron deficiency anemia in schools by over 80%.
The Hb was disseminated to 2 municipalities, from 2 Brazilian states, in a model where the most experienced technicians from Santa luzia do Itanhy acted as reapplicators.
