Hey Baby is a longitudinal mixed-methods cohort study of 800 adolescent parents and their children. This study aims to assess pathways to resilience among adolescent parent families living in adversity, including young parents living in resource-constrained, HIV-affected communities. It asks two main research questions: 1) What puts adolescent parents and their children at risk of disadvantage? and 2) What services can help adolescent parents and their children?
