Life-Course Exposures in Health and Development
This theme assesses the development, health, and disease, and estimates the burden of disease and associated risk factors in the Caribbean, and other relevant populations. We explore the social, psychological, biological and environmental (including climate) exposures on population health, overall wellbeing, and development. Our work is particularly focused on nutrition and metabolism, sickle cell disease and the five other major non-communicable diseases. Our research investigates the impact of prenatal, early childhood, and other life course exposures and informs interventions for improving health and development.
