Improving maternal and infant mortality are key priorities in Kenya and internationally. The Kilifi Perinatal and Maternal Research Project (KIPMAT) aims to determine the burden and risk factors for adverse maternal and newborn outcomes in Kilifi County (www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01757028).  We are assessing the effects of HIV, maternal nutrition, malaria infection, bacterial infection, anaemia and other risk factors on maternal and infant morbidity and mortality.  Longer term morbidity and survival of mothers and infants, and the later consequences to children’s health is monitored through the KHDSS. The outputs will enable better definition of maternal morbidity and adverse events in pregnancy and the perinatal period as we move forward into studies of maternal vaccines to prevent serious infections in infancy and other potential interventions. Following completion of an intensive surveillance phase in the maternity department and antenatal clinic at Kilifi County Hospital, a continued surveillance of key data is ongoing. The main purpose of the job is to provide data management and support to assist the project leaders to implement the network and several research projects on undernutrition and infection that are linked to it in order to achieve their goals and objectives, and to optimize the integrated output of these projects.
