This week in PLoS Medicine: Surgical provision in African hospitals; and more

Read the new papers published in PLoS Medicine this week, including two Research Articles that investigate surgical provision in eight district hospitals in three sub-Saharan African countries. The first article finds low levels of surgical care provision, suggesting unmet need for surgical services, and the second article describes the range of providers of surgical care and anesthesia and estimates the related costs.

Also published this week, a Research in Translation piece emphasizes the importance of finding new approaches to preventing, diagnosing, and treating neonatal sepsis, especially in the developing world where fatality rates are the highest, and a Policy Forum identifies obstacles to alcohol-related screening and treatment for adolescents, and proposes policy solutions to help ensure adolescents are properly diagnosed and treated by healthcare professionals.

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