Havana Asthma Birth Cohort

About the study

The Havana Asthma Birth Cohort was established in 2010/11 as a collaboration between the Institute of Hygiene, Epidemiology and Microbiology in Cuba and The University of Nottingham in the UK in response to Cuban concerns that asthma prevalence was increasing in Cuba. As the children grow older, observations continue on their health and development with a particular interest in allergic disease and tropical infections.
