CANCOVID-Preg

Globally, there are limited data on COVID-19 in pregnancy to inform recommendations for pregnant women and their care providers. This national surveillance project serves to better our understanding of the epidemiology and outcomes associated with COVID-19 in pregnancy and to thereby provide critical data to inform recommendations for pregnant women and their infants. A national approach, with regional leadership across Canada, is in progress with provincial/territorial data collection being combined for a national dataset of cases of COVID-19 in pregnancy. This project also lays the foundation for additional COVID-19 research through the establishment of a biospecimen repository from COVID-19 affected mother-infant pairs.

Coordinating centre lead: Dr. Deborah Money, MD, FRCSC, Professor,  Obstetrics & Gynecology, Medicine, SPPH, Executive Vice-Dean, Clinician Scientist, Women’s Health Research Institute.
