Foetal Exposure and Epidemiological Transition: The Role of Anaemia in Early Life for Non-Communicable Diseases in Later Life

Anaemia and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are major health problems in the developing world. This project investigates if anaemia, in particularly Hb <8 g/dL, in early pregnancy or even before, may programme the foetus towards increased risk for NCDs when growing up in a society in fast transition.
