PLOS Medicine Articles Examine Tobacco Control, Abortion And Preterm Delivery, Global Health Interventions

The PLOS “Speaking of Medicine” blog highlights a number of articles in this week’s issue of PLOS Medicine. According to the blog, the issue includes an article in which researchers “simulated the effect of multiple tobacco control and pharmacological interventions on deaths from heart attack and stroke in India between 2013 and 2022”; a report on how “the link between abortion and preterm delivery in a subsequent pregnancy has disappeared over the last 20-30 years in Scotland”; and an article in which researchers “apply different community or public health evidence frameworks to the same body of evidence for three advocated global health interventions and compare what ratings and policy recommendations result from each” (7/9).
