Childhood mortality during and after acute illness: The CHAIN cohort study in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia

Despite reductions in child mortality globally, the risk of dying during and after acute illnesses is high in low- and middle-income countries. The Childhood Acute Illness & Nutrition (CHAIN) Network is a collaboration of nine research sites in six sub-Saharan African and South Asian countries. The CHAIN cohort study followed acutely ill children during and after hospitalization to identify modifiable pathways to improve survival among high-risk children in low- and middle-income country settings.

In this webinar, the CHAIN Network:
• Shared clinician experiences treating children with acute illness and malnutrition
• Presented quantitative and qualitative findings from the CHAIN cohort study
• Provided an overview of where CHAIN is now and next steps
• Concluded with a panel discussion
