New Issue Of Lancet Global Health Available Online

Writing in a Lancet Global Health editorial, journal editor Zoë Mullan describes the content of the August 2013 issue. “Osman Sankoh and fellow INDEPTH Network colleagues announce a new freely accessible repository of Health and Demographic Surveillance System data generated by its member centers across Africa, Asia, and the Pacific”; NIH “Director Francis Collins and colleagues from eight other research funding bodies announce the launch of a freely accessible online map (World RePORT) showing the location of research programs funded by these organizations in sub-Saharan Africa over the past year”; Denise Baratti-Mayer “and colleagues did an ambitious case-control study in southeastern Niger to try to identify sociodemographic and microbiological risk factors for [the neglected tropical disease noma]”; “Sant-Rayn Pasricha and colleagues’ systematic review and meta-analysis shows that, although daily iron supplements reduce anemia in children aged four to 23 months, they seem to impair length and weight gain, possibly as a result of increased vomiting”; and “Heather Zar and colleagues explore the value of a rapid PCR-based test (Xpert MTB/RIF) in diagnosing tuberculosis in children attending a primary care clinic,” she writes (August 2013).
