You can read more about The Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU) studies on the effects of malaria on fetal growth and development. In 1986 the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU), was established to study the epidemiology, the treatment and the prevention of multi-drug resistant falciparum malaria in the Burmese Karen refugee camps on the Thai-Burma border. Pregnant women in south-east Asia have a high risk of getting severe malaria, hence a large part of the Unit's work is devoted to intensive antenatal care. You can read more about the unit here
