In this, I collaborate with Arciolanda Macama, Custódio Ribeiro, Florita Telo, Helena Velloso och José Katito (The Catholic University of Angola), Nawi Ng (UGOT) and Malin Eriksson (Umeå University). I also supervise Francisca Van-Dúnem dos Reis (doctoral student at the Escola Nacional de Saúde Pública, Lisbon) together with Julian Perelman (ESPN) and Karin Engström (Karolinska Institutet), on a dissertation that examines links between under 5-year olds' morbidity/mortality and the mother's socioeconomic position.
