The UMCUs have an active research portfolio about Pre-eclampsia and related hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are one of the core research areas of Julius Global Health in collaboration with the Wilhelmina Kinderziekenhuis – WKZ and our research partners in Ghana (Ghana Health Service, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, University of Ghana) and Nigeria (Population Council).
Pre-eclampsia and related hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a leading cause of maternal death worldwide. Nearly 76.000 women and 500.000 babies die every year as a result from these disorders.
