South Africa, Brazil, Guatemala, India, and Philippines have followed select populations over a period of time, measuring the impact of social transitions and life experiences. These countries experience high rights of maternal and child undernutrition, and have experienced accelerated social and economic transitions. The Principle Investigators of all five have formed the Consortium of Health Orientated Research in Transitioning Societies (COHORTS) and will be presenting their findings.

The South African Birth-to-Twenty Plus study, hosted by the Developmental Pathways to Health Research Unit and the DST-NRF Centre of Excellence in Human Development, is one of the five cohort studies.
