• Global Child Health Research

    In the Global Child Health Division at Cincinnati Children’s, our research focuses on improving the lives of children and their families throughout the world. Global health research strives to provide better health for all, with an integrated multidisciplinary prevention-oriented approach in the community as well as in the clinic.  It includes issues that directly or indirectly affect health and may transcend national boundaries.   

    Research interests include the use of childhood vaccines including pneumococcal and influenza vaccine in countries with limited resources. Through collaborations in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal, we are evaluating the burden of disease due to pneumococcal and HiB vaccine-preventable infections. We are also investigating the prevention and treatment of low levels of vitamin D in Arab women.
