Shet and colleagues conducted a pragmatic cluster randomized effectiveness trial of children aged 12 to 59 months from 55 villages from the rural Chamrajnagar district in southern India. They found that parental education and counseling by a community health worker achieved perceivable gains in curing childhood anemia. Policy makers should consider this approach to enhance population-level anemia control.
