Timing of Malaria in Pregnancy and Impact on Infant Growth and Morbidity: a Cohort Study in Uganda
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractMalaria in pregnancy (MiP) is a major cause of fetal growth restriction and low birth weight in endemic areas of sub-Saharan Africa. Understanding of the impact of MiP on infant growth and infant risk of malaria or morbidity is poorly characterized. The objective of this study was to describe the impact of MIP on subsequent infant growth, malaria and morbidity.
