Latin American DOHaD Regional Society

The Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD)

is a multidisciplinary field of knowledge that studies and describes the effect of environmental factors, early in life, on the long-term risk of

developing chronic non-communicable diseases. 

The International DOHaD Society, of which we are a part, serves as a hub for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers dedicated to advancing the understanding of the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD).

Our Mission

Given the distinctive cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic nuances across Latin American countries, it's crucial to comprehensively grasp and incorporate these factors into the development of health promotion strategies. At the heart of LA-DOHaD's mission lies the endeavor to foster the exchange of ideas and initiatives, as well research results, within the realm of DOHaD in Latin America. Furthermore, we aim to actively promote the principles and significance of DOHaD among both the scientific community and society at large.

Our overarching goal is to generate knowledge that can effectively underpin public policies aimed at preventing non-communicable diseases throughout Latin American nations.
