Two awareness ribbons are listed for Pernicious anemia, both ribbons are colored red, white and black.
The second ribbon has the words "Pernicious Anaemia" written on the black part, and B12 Deficiency on the red part.
PA is estimated to affect 0.1% of the general population and 1.9% of those over 60, accounting for 20 to 50% of B12 deficiency in adults. It has been shown from a literature review that the prevalence of PA was higher in North European, especially for Scandinavian countries and African descent, in which high/increased awareness towards the disease and better diagnostic tools might partly play a role in it.
