This week in the spectrum of article types available from PLoS Medicine, we published a new research article, essay and policy forum. You can read about our different article types in the Contents section of our information page.

Luke Mullany and colleagues report the outcomes of a project that delivered community-based maternal health services in eastern Burma, and report substantial increases in the coverage of care.

Naman Shah critiques the malaria elimination agenda, arguing that it may only be feasible and equitable in limited settings.

Gerry Killeen and colleagues argue that malaria eradication efforts will not be successful until a better understanding of the ecology and evolution of the mosquito vectors is gained.

Remember you can comment on, annotate and rate any PLoS Medicine article and see the views, citations and other indications of impact of an article on that articles metrics tab.
