I am preparing an article entitled “Which single intervention would do the most to improve the health of those living on less than $1 per day?”
My aim is to ask 100 people around the world (including some living in poverty) to answer the above question in around 50 words.
PLoS Medicine, the open access global health journal at www.plosmedicine.org
, is publishing a special issue on poverty, human development, and health on October 22nd. My piece will be in this special issue.
If you are a health/medical/science journalist in a low income country, would you like to contribute? If so, please send me your suggestion and I will include the best ones in the article (if I include your suggestion, it will be attributed to you by name, and I'd like to add your job title and city).
In addition, if you are able to ask those you know who are living under $1/day what they believe would do the most to improve their health, and you can confirm that they would be happy to be quoted, I would be very grateful indeed.
With thanks and best wishes,
Gavin Yamey, Senior Editor, www.plosmedicine.org
