BETHESDA, Md., - The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has launched a Spanish-language website that provides free information on health topics, including maternal and infant care, obesity, HIV/AIDS, fertility/infertility, and pregnancy.

 

The new site offers the latest research news from the NICHD, as well as Spanish-language podcasts and materials on a wide range of topics, such as the safety of taking anti-HIV drugs during pregnancy and how bilingualism improves brain function. In addition to information on taking part in clinical research trials, the site also describes the NICHD's outreach and educational campaigns, including Safe to Sleep®, about ways to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and other sleep-related causes of infant death, and Know Your Terms, about healthy full-term pregnancy.
