LEARNING CLUBS TO IMPROVE WOMEN’S HEALTH AND INFANT’S HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENT IN VIETNAM: A CLUSTER RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL OF A LOW-COST, EVIDENCE-INFORMED, STRUCTURED INTERVENTION
Grant number: 1100147 | Funding period: 2016 - 2019
Poor physical and mental health among women in resource-constrained settings and the flow-on consequences for their infants are international priorities. No intervention to improve early childhood development in these settings has addressed more than two (of eight) major risk factors. Our aim is to establish in a cluster RCT in rural Vietnam the impact of a comprehensive, integrated, low-cost, accessible, universal program addressing all eight risks, for women’s health and infant development.
