PALs was appointed by the PRE-eclampsia-Eclampsia Monitoring, Prevention and Treatment (PRE-EMPT) initiative to lead the geospatial analyses for the Community Level Interventions for PreEclampsia (CLIP) trials. PRE-EMPT is a multi-million-dollar initiative coordinated centrally from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Research Program at the University of British Columbia in Canada.
The objective of this work is;
- To assess the spatial epidemiology of adverse maternal and perinatal outcomes from the CLIP trials in India, Pakistan and Mozambique
- To identify communities and individual women with less than expected rates of adverse outcomes and determine the characteristics and strategies that promote maternal resilience
- To investigate geographical influences on dosage on PIERs on the Move (POM) visits in the CLIP study sites
- Create geo-visualizations and animation that communicate progress and impact of the trials in the different CLIP countries
