Infant health effects of a nurse-community health worker home visitation programme: a randomized controlled trial
Child: Care, Health, and Development, 04/17/2012Meghea CI et al.

Targeting such interventions at common health problems of infancy and childhood or at diagnosed chronic conditions may prove more successful.
