Entebbe Mother and Baby Study

The Entebbe Mother and Baby Study (EMaBS) is a unique birth cohort, on-going in Africa. The study was designed as a trial to investigate possible benefits of treating worm infections during pregnancy and early childhood.  Now the cohort is providing many opportunities to explore and understand how experiences early in life can affect health outcomes in the tropics.

The study is based at the Entebbe General Hospital and at the MRC/UVRI Uganda Research Unit. To find out more about this study and the vaccine research undertaken within this cohort please visit the study website.
