INVESTIGATION

In order to carry out this investigation, pregnant women will be identified and recruited in a defined geographic area and a register of several thousand live births will be created. Based on this recruitment, an epidemiological cohort will be constituted including all newborns. These children will then be carefully followed until their second birthday. This system will be repeated in several low-income countriesLow-income countries

This term is generally used to describe a nation with a low level of material well-being. Since no single definition of the term developing country is recognized internationally, the levels of development may vary widely within so-called developing countries. Some developing countries have high average standards of living.

The World Bank classifies all low- and middle-income countries as developing but notes, "The use of the term is convenient; it is not intended to imply that all economies in the group are experiencing similar development or that other economies have reached a preferred or final stage of development.

around the world. It is not a bank in the common sense. It is made up of two unique development institutions owned by 187 member countries: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). Each institution plays a different but collaborative role in advancing the vision of inclusive and sustainable globalization. The IBRD aims to reduce poverty in middle-income and creditworthy poorer countries, while the IDA focuses on the world's poorest countries.

For operational and analytical purposes, the World Bank's main criterion for classifying economies is gross national income (GNI) per capita. Based on its annual GNI per capita, every economy is classified as low-income, middle income (lower and upper middle income) or high income.
