About Bradford

Bradford is the 6th largest city in the UK, with a multi-ethnic population of more than 500,000 people. However Bradford suffers from high levels of deprivation as well as having some of the highest rates of childhood illness in the UK.

About BiB

Born in Bradford is helping to unravel the reasons for this ill health and bring new scientific discovery to the world. It is also providing a catalyst for communities to work with the NHS and local authority to improve child health and wellbeing.

What BiB parents say

“Have you thought more about your family’s health because you are part of the BiB cohort?”

“I have learnt about different kinds of genetic illnesses and about allergies that people have. I am much more aware of eating and what to avoid. My daughter has got an asthma pipe and I know about what can be done to prevent asthma. I am dusting more now, particularly the beds.”
