The third follow-up to the Cebu Longitudinal Health and Nutrition Survey followed the structure of the first follow-up rounds, and added a focus on adolescent reproductive health, sexual behavior, and measurements of physical activity and blood pressure. Physical activity was monitored using a CALTRAC instrument. The mother's questionnaires collected additional information on memory and physical functioning. For a subgroup of a sample, fasting blood samples and saliva were collected. A pilot study on the effects of typhoid immunization was also included.

The modules in this follow-up were divided into modules based on index children: questionnaires were specific for girls, boys, mothers of girls, and mothers of boys. Community and health facility questionnaires were also part of this follow-up survey.
