Defining Optimal Gestational Weight Gain Based on the New Brazilian Charts: Impact on Public Health Nutrition Policy Using Linked Data from SISVAN-SINASC

Since the gestational weight curves (GWC) adopted by the Ministry of Health are based only on neonatal outcomes and on maternal and child outcomes, this project aims to fill these gaps and determine the GWC ranges for the four categories of pre-gestational corporal mass index. As products, it will develop guidelines for the use of the curves and recommendations, packages to increase the capacity-building of healthcare professionals, policymakers and students and an interactive dashboard using SISVAN data for continuous surveillance.
