Merck an America based healthcare and pharmaceutical company continues to spread awareness about anemia in Asia.

Following last year's highly successful Anemia Convention, Merck's latest anemia awareness campaign took shape at the RCOG (Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) World Congress 2018 held recently in Singapore.

This event attracts close to 3000 obstetricians, gynecologists and related specialties from across the world.

Merck spearheaded the Anemia Convention 2017 to provide a platform for healthcare professionals to share their expertise, exchange views and discuss about the impact of iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia on quality of life and on trends on iron supplementation in the context of anemia.

Like the Anemia Convention, the RCOG World Congress also serves as an educational springboard for participants to take the learnings back to their markets and share them to fellow Health Care Professionals to further build understanding and awareness about specific health issues.

Merck intends to keep health care professionals as well as the general public updated on the latest information, studies and statistics about anemia to empower them in forming steps against the condition.

"Merck is committed to the education and awareness around anemia due to iron deficiency. It is a global burden that we in the industry, healthcare providers and governments all need to address together.

We would like to sustain and further develop our partnerships with experts and healthcare professionals across various platforms so we can learn more about anemia as well as develop treatments and strategies with healthcare professionals to address this global health burden better," stated Dr. Ashley Barlow, Regional Medical Director, Asia, Merck Consumer Health.
