Wrapping up the month of August, PLOS Medicine publishes three new articles, including our monthly editorial, and a new sponsored collection:

The PLOS Medicine Editors discuss the need for transparent urban air quality indicators across the globe and especially in low- and middle-income countries.

Dick Menzies and colleagues report findings from a collaborative, individual patient-level meta-analysis of treatment outcomes among patients with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.

Philippe Calain discusses the health and environmental hazards of extractive industries like mining and explores the tensions that arise when medical humanitarian organizations are called to intervene in emergencies involving the extractive sector.
