New publications from CHAMPS researchers in Ethiopia focus on causes of under-five stillbirth and death both across the CHAMPS network and in Hararghe, Ethiopia, where neural tube defects are especially high.
Largely preventable, these birth defects can occur from a lack of folate in the diets of childbearing women. The World Health Assembly passed a resolution in May, 2023 urging the acceleration of micronutrient fortification globally to prevent nutrition deficiencies. CHAMPS findings emphasize the urgency of this resolution to improve maternal health and save lives.
