Maternal and child health news, resources and funding for global health researchers

Fogarty has a strong commitment to improving the health of children, adults, families and communities throughout the world. Several Fogarty programs currently address issues related to maternal and child health, including vaccinations, trauma, birth defects, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), fetal alcohol syndrome and childhood nutrition.

The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) leads NIH research efforts in the fields of child health and development, including pregnancy and fertility. The NIH Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) works in partnership across NIH to ensure that women's health research is part of the scientific framework at the NIH and throughout the scientific community.

Fogarty participated in the MAL-ED program to investigate linkages between malnutrition and intestinal infections and their effects on children in the developing world. Fogarty and NIH partners also support research to reduce household air pollution from elemental stoves for cooking or heating, which impacts women and children.
