Anemi og miljøgifter hos gravide kvinner i Nord-India. En pilotstudie av ny analysemetodikk.

Vitenskapelig tittel:

Profile and severity of anaemia and environmental contaminants in pregnant women in rural North India (SOMAARTH Demographic Development and Environment Surveillance Site, INCLEN, Palwal, Haryana); An Indo-Norway collaborative capacity building and feasibility pilot study.

The role of environmental risk factors for adverse pregnancy outcomes is not well understood in India despite the extreme exposure situations. National data show that 71.1 % of the pregnant women in Haryana are anemic. Anaemia amongst pregnant women is a major risk factor for infant prematurity and low birth weight. The role of persistent toxic substances in anaemia and other pregnancy problems is poorly understood. The exposure risks to persistent toxic substances and their relationship with birth outcomes is being examined in depth in many global regions, but not in India. The proposed research aims to establish measurements of exposures and outcomes in an on-going birth cohort in Palwal under INCLEN. This pilot study will aid in development of a full scale assessment of the current impacts and enable modeling of future impacts in the face of climate change mediated shifts. It will introduce filter papers for blood sampling according to the protocol developed.
