Our Approach

Our approach to research focuses on improving the quality of facility care for mothers and newborns through a package of interventions in Kenya and Uganda and group antenatal and postnatal care in Rwanda. Working in all three countries, our discovery researchers investigate potential causes, epidemiology, and outcomes of preterm birth. Through our Transdisciplinary Postdoctoral Fellowship, we are building the capacity of the next generation of preterm-birth researchers in East Africa.
