Consortia: RESPIRE – Relating Environment-use Scenarios in Pregnancy/Infanthood and Resulting airborne material Exposures to child health outcomes
Led by: Prof Cathy Thornton, Swansea University
Pregnant women have a unique position in our efforts to mitigate the vulnerability of children to the ill-effects of air pollution. We will address knowledge gaps related to patterns and consequences of airborne exposures during pregnancy. The core tenet is to elaborate how pregnant women interact with and respond to airborne materials to inform guidelines, policies and behaviours to truly engender long-term health benefits.
