About BiB

Born in Bradford is an internationally-recognised research programme which aims to find out what keeps families healthy and happy. We use this information to work with the local authority, health, education and voluntary sector providers across Bradford district to develop, implement and evaluate ambitious programmes to improve population health. We have a vast ‘city of research’ infrastructure which includes detailed health and wellbeing information on Bradfordians enrolled in our three birth cohort studies and a connected routine dataset of health, social care and education data for over 700,000 citizens living in Bradford and Airedale. We host a range of initiatives to improve health working with the local authority, health, education, cultural and voluntary sector providers.

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.”
