30 Sep Dr. Bérard has obtained a CIHR grant

Dr. Bérard received a new grant from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) to perform a case-control study on mother-to-child transmission of HIV during pregnancy. Three outcomes of maternal HIV will be assessed: 1) mother-baby transmission; 2) congenital malformations; and 3) neonatal deaths. This study will be conducted using two Canadian databases (the Quebec Pregnancy Cohort and the Saskatchewan database) and an American database (US Medicaid Cohort).
