CHIP: Childhood Infections and Pollution
Infections related to pollution have consistently been one of the leading causes of mortality for children under-five (U5) in peri-urban slums all over the world. Furthermore, these areas are likely to see higher usage of antibiotics, which in turn has led to increasing levels of antimicrobial resistance (AMR): one of the greatest future global health challenges. There have been attempts to address these issues in isolation from one another, but they have proven to be unsuccessful, necessitating a different approach. The Childhood Infection and Pollution (CHIP) study uses a One Health approach, which is advocated by WHO to address AMR, in combination with a technology-enabled citizen science approach to reduce the burden of childhood infections and AMR in U5s in peri-urban slums. It is currently active in India, Indonesia, Chile and Sierra Leone. CHIP builds upon the Participatory Approach for Nutrition in Children: Strengthening Health, Education, Environment and Engineering Linkage (PANcHSHEEEL) project, which used a participatory research model to address infant feeding practices in rural Banswara. CHIP is composed of interdisciplinary academics, healthcare professionals, veterinarians, international and local non-governmental organisations, current and former policymakers, local artists and community champions, amongst others. The CHIP executive committee consists of Prof. Monica Lakhanpaul, consultant paediatrician at Whittington Hospital, UK, Pro vice provost UCL – South Asia, and Professor of Integrated Community Child Health at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health; Dr Logan Manikam, director of Aceso Global Health Consultants Ltd, NIHR Advanced Fellow and Associate Professor at UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Healthcare, and Medical Registrar in Acute Medicine; Dr Dewi Nur Aisyah, Program Implementation Department Senior Manager and Research Associate at INDOHUN, recipient of the Indonesia Presidential Scholarship in 2014 and winner of Imagine Cup Student Competition 2016; and Prof. Pam Faktor-Litvak, Professor of Epidemiology, Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Epidemiology and Associate Dean for Research Resources at Columbia University Medical Center.
