Exclusive breastfeeding - In 2017, 40.7 percent of infants below six months of age were exclusively breastfed in comparison to 36.9 percent in 2012. The trend is encouraging in Africa and Asia compared to those in Northern America where only 26.4 percent of infants fewer than six months receive breast milk exclusively. However, anaemia (deficiency of red cells or of haemoglobin in the blood) is still prevalent among women of reproductive age.
