Papers in this collection are from a Medical Research Council funded study (grant id number 70363) led by Dr Paula Griffiths of the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences. This study analysed and collected data from a sub-sample of individuals enrolled in the Birth to Twenty longitudinal cohort study, the largest and longest running study of child and adolescent health and development in Africa. The findings of this body of research have provided novel information on the relative contribution of household, school, and community measures of socio-economic status (SES) to health and lifestyle inequalities in childhood and adolescence in the Johannesburg/ Soweto area of South Africa.
