Healthy Birth, Growth, and Development Knowledge Integration

Shasha Jumbe

What can shared data tell us about the relationship between physical growth and cognitive development? When is it best to intervene and with which interventions?

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Health Birth Growth and Development initiative is trying to answer these questions by pooling existing data sets following childhood development. This presentation will highlight progress to date on this project.
