NIH hosts event to launch Council of Science Editors' global theme issue
Date:10/22/2007

The National Institutes of Health today is hosting the launch of the Council of Science Editors global theme issue on poverty and human development, to coincide with the publication of related research by more than 230 journals worldwide. Seven of the most outstanding articles examining interventions and projects to improve health and reduce health-care inequities among the poor are being presented at the event. The diverse topics include childbirth safety, HIV/AIDS, malaria treatment, food insufficiency and sexual behavior, interventions to improve child survival, physician brain drain from the developing world, and influenza's impact on children.

The symposium is being webcast live and archived for future viewing: http://videocast.nih.gov/summary.asp?live=6239

"The scope and diversity of these critical research projects illustrate the complexity of today's major global health challenges that require multi-disciplinary approaches," said Elias A. Zerhouni, NIH Director. "As we begin to reap the benefits of our investment in cutting-edge fields such as genomics, we must ensure that these incredible scientific advances are adapted for effective delivery to all people, including those in resource-poor settings."

The global theme issue launch is being sponsored by two NIH components: the Fogarty International Center and the National Library of Medicine, in cooperation with the Council of Science Editors. Based in Reston, Va., the council serves its more than 1,200 members around the world by fostering networking, education, discussion, and exchange and providing an authoritative resource on issues involving the communication of scientific information.

This remarkable international collaboration highlights the tremendous health disparities that exist in the developing world and demonstrates that, through science, we can reduce the huge inequities that exist, according
