Improving maternal and child health

Anaemia and undernutrition is very common in low- and middle-income countries, especially in pregnancy and in young children.

We are undertaking a program of large randomised controlled trials in rural Bangladesh and Malawi to assess new solutions for anaemia control with the goal of improving maternal and child health, including pregnancy outcomes, maternal wellbeing, infection risk and child growth and development.

Trials in Bangladesh

  • BRISC: Benefits and Risks of Iron InterventionS in Children: a randomized controlled trial in rural Bangladesh
  • EDIVA: Efficacy and Demonstration of IntraVenous Iron for Anaemia in Pregnancy

Trials in Malawi

  • REVAMP: Randomized controlled trial of the Effect of intraVenous iron on Anaemia in Malawian Pregnant women
  • REVAMP-TT: Randomized controlled trial of the Effect of intraVenous iron on Anaemia in Malawian Pregnant women in their Third Trimester 
  • IRMA: Benefits and safety of IRon supplementation with MAlaria chemoprevention to children in Malawi
