DOHaD International works to coordinate research and advocacy strategies in different countries to promote and support a healthy start to life. We aim especially to promote the interchange of ideas, staff and expertise between institutions, laboratories and research groups around the world. Thus, the Society looks globally to provide linkages and support to regional groups where individuals that share a language, a geographical region, or a coordinated strategic mission, can come together and form a DOHaD Regional Society.
While the mission and values of DOHaD Regional Societies coincide closely with the International DOHaD Society, these Groups additionally benefit from targeted advocacy, education and research efforts to each Group’s specific region and Membership. Regional Groups are highly regarded by the Society, as they foster research interests in DOHaD internationally, support Society membership, and promote international research collegiality.
