What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Public health

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Pediatrics, Demography, Environmental health, Psychological intervention and Cohort study. He has included themes like Developing country, Pregnancy, Birth weight and Infant mortality in his Pediatrics study. His work deals with themes such as Overweight, Obesity, Gerontology, Anthropometry and Cohort, which intersect with Demography.

His Environmental health research includes elements of Epidemiology, Public health, Socioeconomic status, Child mortality and Malnutrition. His research in Psychological intervention intersects with topics in Family planning, Millennium Development Goals and Program evaluation. Cesar G. Victora interconnects Cross-sectional study, Prospective cohort study and Oral hygiene in the investigation of issues within Cohort study.

His most cited work include:

  • Maternal and child undernutrition and overweight in low-income and middle-income countries (3620 citations)
  • Maternal and child undernutrition: consequences for adult health and human capital. (2358 citations)
  • Breastfeeding in the 21st century: epidemiology, mechanisms, and lifelong effect (2248 citations)
