    Fertility and Family

    Overview

    The families and households with whom we live or to which we are connected have a profound influence on our health and wellbeing across the life course. Family-orientated interventions and social policy have the potential to make major contributions to improving child and adult survival, health and development. In the global south, the diversity and amount of change in contemporary family and household contexts is much less well documented than in other regions. This work addresses how best to;

    i) improve the measurement of the family and household environment in low and middle-income countries

    ii) understand the interrelationships between family processes, functioning, and health.

    The collaborative studies conducted place an emphasis on the value of using and enhancing the data collected by longitudinal demographic surveillance systems. Many of the studies also conduct in-depth research with families and households in the same study communities.

    The aim of this research is to positively impact public health in these regions through the design of appropriate health and welfare interventions and policies that are family-orientated and can be rigorously evaluated and implemented in resource-constrained settings.
