Abstract :

Background: Anemia is one of the world’s public health problem, especially in developing nations. The majority of women of childbearing age are affected by anemia. Women’s role in the decision-making process is significant for their health and related issues such as anemia. So far, there is no evidence of women’s decision making autonomy on anemia. Consequently, this study aimed to robustly examine both individual- and group-level women’s decision-making autonomy and other determinants of anemia among married women in Ethiopia. Conclusions: This study showed that empowering women within households is not only an important mechanism to reduce anemia among but also serves as a way to improve the lives of other women within the society.
