In a systematic review of the literature, Julia Hussein and colleagues sought to determine the effect of referral interventions that enable emergency access to health facilities for pregnant women living in developing countries.

As one article in an ongoing series on Global Mental Health Practice, Shoba Raja and colleagues provide a case study of BasicNeeds in Nepal, which emphases user empowerment, community development, health systems strengthening, and policy change to help socially disadvantaged individuals with mental health conditions.

Willem Takken and colleagues argue for the expansion of insecticide monotherapy in malaria control by taking lessons from agriculture and including more sustainable integrated vector management strategies.
