The Woman and Child Health Research Centre (W&CHRC) is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary center at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium. The center focuses on generating evidence to improve women’s and children’s health in developing countries with a life course perspective.

Based on the research currently carried out and on the new opportunities offered by the interdepartmental collaboration, the W&CHRC defined three priority thematic research lines: adolescent health (preparing young parents for a healthy first pregnancy), perinatal health (indirect causes of maternal mortality and continuum of care for both mothers and newborns), and reproductive health (family planning and reproductive cancers).
