Birth Defects Surveillance

Lubaga Hospital has a research corroboration with Makerere University John Hopkins University (MUJHU). The birth defect surveillance in Lubaga Hospital for the next four years will examine the association of maternal use of Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) and birth defects.

The surveillance program will provide crucial current data on the baseline prevalence defects in Uganda while the case-control study will allow examination of possible antiretroviral treatment outcomes on infants.
