In iron4u we have clear and passionate feelings about how global iron deficiency should be solved. We believe that no single initiative can stand alone but that it should be a coordinated effort covering below initiatives:
- Public education
- Nutritional supplementation
- Early diagnosis of chronic diseases affecting iron balance
- By using oral iron, in the cases where the level of iron deficiency and expected medication adherence combined makes it a likely clinical choice
- By timely and efficient use of well documented parenteral iron therapy solutions in cases where oral iron is not the optimal solution.
It is iron4u’s mission to introduce a new parenteral treatment solution for iron deficiency anaemia that will solve some of the historical shortcomings of parenteral iron compounds, offering an attractive, well documented and cost effective solution for combating iron deficiency anaemia in both rich and poor countries.
