Three new articles published this week in PLOS Medicine:

In a synthesis of 21 qualitative studies representing the views of more than 1,230 women from 15 countries, Kenneth Finlayson and Soo Downe examine the reasons why many women in low- and middle-income countries do not receive adequate antenatal care.

Nicholas Tan and colleagues ] use a decision analytic model to quantify the impact of the ten-year national syphilis control plan in China and conclude that earlier and more extensive screening are also necessary for reaching policy goals.

Robert Fryatt and colleagues argue for more attention to climate change in sub-Saharan Africa, a region that has contributed the least greenhouse gas emissions to the world’s total but is more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change than any other.
