Advocacy, Research, & Education
At the DOHaD Society, we believe that health promotion occurs throughout the life course. Our Members work to promote, advocate and initiate global health strategies that result in healthy futures. They engage in novel scientific research exploring the biology behind a healthy start to life, how our biology interacts with the environments within which we live, and how we can ensure that everyone has a healthy start to life to improve lifelong health. We currently have 1,000+ members in over 60 countries, along with numerous Regional DOHaD Societies worldwide.

Working For Future Generations
At the heart of our work is the goal is to improve health and well-being across generations, particularly in communities that face barriers. From the very first stages of our development through early childhood, our Members investigate biological, social and cultural mechanisms that underpin the early life origins of health and disease. In addition to engaging in cutting edge research, we are passionate about translating our work into health solutions by developing and supporting early life health interventions. Our intervention strategies and advocacy initiatives are supported by our dedication to creating improved conditions in communities and populations facing global health inequities.
