Results & Indicators

Expected Results


Achieved Results

Objective 1: Prevention (the CAP or the Calcium and Pre-eclampsia Trial) – found that low-dose calcium probably reduces risk of recurrent
pre-eclampsia and pregnancy loss

Objective 2: Monitoring (miniPIERS and PIERS On the Move) – Accurate time-of-disease risk stratification, detected 2081 hypertensive pregnant women

Objective 3: Treatment (Gynuity Oral Antihypertensive Project and the Community Level Interventions for Pre-eclampsia Trial)
Detected 894 women with severe pregnancy hypertension and found Nifedipine, Labetalol and Methyldopa largely equivalent.

Objective 4: Global Pregnancy Collaboration – 24 Centres providing samples, access to >450,000 samples

Objective 5: Knowledge Translation – 23,106 community engagement sessions during CLIP Trials and 589 health workers trained
