Entebbe Hospital staff

Entebbe Hospital staff are key members of the team – they had an especially big role in recruitment of the study participants at the antenatal clinic, delivery of the babies, and provision of immunisations.

EMaBS community field workers

EMaBS community field workers are critical members of the team.  They were chosen by the local council executives of each village in the EMaBS catchment area.  They followed up EMaBS children twice a month to age five years.  They received initial training, with certification, and attended meetings monthly for updates. They were each given a bicycle to help them in the work.  They still provide valuable support to EMaBS with follow up activities and helping us to keep in touch with the community.
