Starting next month, the residents in the BMC IM global health pathway will be publishing pieces every two weeks on topics in global health. Should be quite enjoyable!
A brief piece touching up quality in global health and summarizing several other papers within the same issue. I do think that improving delivery and implementation is a hugely important in global health – perhaps the most important at this particular moment – and that future programs will necessarily have a heavy focus on this.
Long piece focused on Jim Kim’s work at the World Bank – nicely lays out the changes he as an on-the-ground development sort is trying to actualize at an institution that does not have a strong history of working in that area.
Resurgent polio in Nigeria – as we discussed on our global health trip, finishing off the eradication process has proven to be very difficult.
A difficult situation in Haiti, where striking residents are holding out for a living wage and better working conditions – fair complaints – but as detailed, are leaving the health system without doctors to care for an already underserved population. No easy answers to this problem.
