ABCD-study

 


Amsterdam Born Childrenand their Development study.

 


Go to the ABCD-study website



Objective
The main goal of the ABCD study is to examine anddetermine factors in early life (during pregnancy and infancy) that mightexplain the later health of the child, and the differences in health betweenchildren.

The origin of significant health problems in children (such as obesity andADHD), and adults (e.g. cardiovascular disease) often lies in early life. TheABCD study aims to investigate to what extent children’s health is influencedby lifestyle and circumstances in their first years of life by means ofquestionnaires, blood samples and physical measurements. Although ethnicity isknown to be an important determinant of health in children, it remains unclearby which mechanisms this difference is mediated. For this reason, the study isdesigned to examine and explain health inequalities in children from differentethnic groups.

Knowledge of the factors that influence children’s health is important in orderto develop culture-specific counseling programs to improve children’s healthand development early in life, and to prevent differences in health statusbetween ethnic groups.

 

Data collection frompregnancy records of the mothers from the ABCD-study will supply moreinformation factors on clinical values (blood pressure etc.) of the mother thatmight influence the fetus in utero.
