Research

iLINS2.JPGPhysical activity measurement belts.jpg Our current research is mostly focused on maternal and child health, with special emphasis on three interrelated conditions: maternal and child malaria and other infections, preterm birth, and childhood malnutrition. 

These topics are justified by their relative importance in global health: Approximately 14 million or 10% of all births occur preterm each year, with a major impact of subsequent morbidity and mortality both to the mothers and the children. Under-five year-old children, on the other hand, constitute one of the most vulnerable populations in any society, as indicated e.g. by the approximately 7 million child deaths that take place each year.

Many of our current research projects are formed around clinical trials, but with significant biomedical, public health, and social science components.

By combining the various approaches, we wish to produce new knowledge on molecular, environmental and social events leading to health, test new interventions to prevent or manage certain conditions, and provide evidence on the social, economic, and political acceptability of possible interventions.
