This week in PLoS Medicine: Call for better global health data; Pregnancies at risk of malaria in 2007; Lessons for a stronger institutional framework; and more!

Read the new papers published in PLoS Medicine this week, including a Research Article that finds at least 125.2 million women at risk of malaria become pregnant each year, a Health in Action that discuss how Médecins Sans Frontières has addressed the issue of maintaining quality control for laboratory testing, and an Essay in which eight global health agencies call for a concerted global effort to collect better health data.

Also published this week is a Policy Forum – the last in a four-part series on the changing nature of global health institutions – that argues an effective global health system must accomplish at least five core functions: agenda-setting; financing and resource allocation; research and development; implementation and delivery; and monitoring, evaluation, and learning and the January Editorial in which the PLoS Medicine Editors discuss how collisions between science and politics slow progress in public health.

You can comment on, annotate, and rate this week’s PLoS Medicine articles and any of the others in the archive.
