Event 12 May 2013

Kevin Mortimer and Stephen Gordon have been awarded £2.7m to fund a two year study which will track 10,000 children aged under five who live in randomised villages in Malawi. The homes of the children involved in the study will be supplied with two clean cookstoves to see if the new stoves will stop the children getting pneumonia, a major cause of death in this age group. More details are available at www.capstudy.org.  CAPS Trial Steering Committee members from Malawi, the United States and the UK will be welcomed to LSTM by the CAPS team.
