Maternal health workers at MORU's Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU) which recently contributed RCT data from the Thailand-Myanmar border to a large review on LMICs (21 studies in 20 882 children) that suggests targeting parental, environmental and nutritional factors from pre-pregnancy through childhood is a way forward to improve health and development of LMIC children.

Our integrated, highly collaborative, flexible structure of 5 research units and ~ 50 clinical research sites across Asia and Africa allows us to address global and regional health problems by conducting targeted clinical and public health research that discover and develop appropriate, practical, affordable interventions that measurably improve the health of people living in resource-limited parts of the world.
