Feb Global Health Readings

A point on Zika that I had not even considered (though since this has been more frequently discussed) – the confluence of restrictive family planning and an infection that causes birth defects is deeply unfortunate.
Important editorial discussing the benefits and harms alike of peacekeeping missions. The parallels to similar deployments of health workers, particularly in terms of salary distortion, are quite notable.
Finally, this JAMA perspectives piece is a nice review of some of the issues facing critical care in resource-limited settings. The general theme that the guidelines for resource-replete locations do not necessarily translate to resource-limited ones is applicable across a range of fields; replace your area of interest with the examples used, and with a few exceptions, the arguments will still ring true. Worth reading for that alone.
