[Comment] More than honour, humanitarian health-care workers need life-saving protection

Me, 18/08/2021 - 23:30
Honouring all humanitarian workers, including health-care professionals, Aug 19, 2021, marks the second World Humanitarian Day since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many humanitarian workers have given their lives to support and protect the communities they serve, including millions of the world's most vulnerable women, children, and adolescents.

[Articles] Global, regional, and national progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 3.2 for neonatal and child health: all-cause and cause-specific mortality findings from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2019

Ma, 17/08/2021 - 23:30
Global child mortality declined by almost half between 2000 and 2019, but progress remains slower in neonates and 65 (32%) of 204 countries, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and south Asia, are not on track to meet either SDG 3.2 target by 2030. Focused improvements in perinatal and newborn care, continued and expanded delivery of essential interventions such as vaccination and infection prevention, an enhanced focus on equity, continued focus on poverty reduction and education, and investment in strengthening health systems across the development spectrum have the potential to substantially improve U5MR.

[Correspondence] Sickle cell trait: an unsound cause of death

Ma, 17/08/2021 - 23:30
In forensic pathology, cause of death is defined as the disease or injury that triggers the events that lead to death. If a chronically ill woman dies from a gunshot wound, it is this injury, not her underlying health issues, that led to her death. The same logic applies to injuries inflicted by law enforcement.

[Comment] In-country data will illuminate under-5 mortality disparities

Ma, 17/08/2021 - 23:30
In The Lancet, Nicholas Kassebaum and colleagues present all-cause and cause-specific mortality findings from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) to illustrate global, regional, and national progress toward Sustainable Development Goal 3.2 for neonatal and child health.1 Their analysis provides a comprehensive assessment of under-5 and neonatal mortality across 203 countries, including a focus on preventable mortality and projections to 2030. The authors' meta-level look at death rates and cause-specific mortality, grouped by country level and sociodemographic indices, also looks at the effect of COVID-19 on future projections.
