Coexistence of obesity and anaemia during pregnancy

The overall purpose of this project is to develop and pilot an intervention seeking to prevent adverse health outcomes due to the co-existence of obesity and anaemia in pregnancy. The proposed project will be carried out in Mexico and involve comprehensive formative research to ensure a careful epidemiological and qualitative understanding of the target group and local context. Furthermore, the intervention will be co-produced with pregnant women, healthcare providers and other relevant stakeholders.
