We will collect data on both “determinants of health” and “health outcomes”. Our evaluation of the “determinants of health” will encompass all three domains defined by WHO: socioeconomic environment, physical environment, and individual characteristics and behaviours (Figure 1). As described below, for each domain we will collect data on a number of sub-domains which, based on available literature, can be relevant to pregnancy outcomes, child mental and physical development, and early- and late-onset chronic non-communicable diseases.
