African-ancestry babies get less prenatal care in Brazil

Babies in Brazil of African ancestry, alone or mixed, are more likely to have low birth weights and to be born prematurely than those born to parents of European-only ancestry, according to a new study from the University of Iowa. The reasons may be less use of prenatal care facilities and where non-European-only ethnic groups live. Findings appear in the American Journal of Public Health.
