Predictors and consequences of gestational weight gain in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) settings (2/20/2019 – 07/31/2022)

The project will examine the impact of gestational weight gain (GWG) as a determinant of pregnancy outcomes in the context of LMICs using pregnancy cohorts in the GHAP datasets and others. Secondary data analyses will be undertaken to (i) identify geographic patterns in the distribution of GWG, (ii) identify risk factors inadequate GWG, (iii) evaluate … Continue reading “Predictors and consequences of gestational weight gain in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) settings (2/20/2019 – 07/31/2022)”

Demonstrating non-inferiority of a lower dose (500mg) calcium supplementation during pregnancy for reducing preeclampsia (PE) and neonatal outcomes (10/15/2017-8/31/2022)

The objective of this study is to generate causal evidence for decision-making on the potential non-inferiority of a lower dose of calcium in preventing preeclampsia and preterm birth and to understand the acceptability, uptake, and adherence to the WHO recommended 1500 mg calcium supplementation among pregnant women in Tanzania and India. We will conduct two, … Continue reading “Demonstrating non-inferiority of a lower dose (500mg) calcium supplementation during pregnancy for reducing preeclampsia (PE) and neonatal outcomes (10/15/2017-8/31/2022)”
