Program Components

Through a set of funding awards, NIH has established the essential components of the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Program to support multiple, synergistic longitudinal studies that extend and expand existing cohort studies of mothers and their children. ECHO research will focus on factors that may influence health outcomes around the time of birth as well as into later childhood and adolescence, including upper and lower airway health and development, obesity, and brain and nervous system development.
