Feedback form is now closed.
This workshop will explore the opportunities and challenges related to the implementation of a birth cohort study (Future Impact Today) in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Experiences of senior researchers from Sweden who have expertise in the planning and management of birth cohort studies will assist in providing direction to address the identified challenges. We plan to identify linkages in South Africa and Sweden, and apply methods from life course epidemiology to investigate and address the short and long-term consequences of early nutrition across the life course and across generations. The aim of the workshop is to strengthen our international research networks.

Keywords: malnutrition, developmental origins of health and disease, birth cohort
