The Lancet Finds Improvements in Health in Bangladesh

The Lancet, a leading medical journal, recently published a special series on improvements in the survival of infants and children under 5 years of age, life expectancy, immunization coverage, and tuberculosis control in Bangladesh. Calling it a “remarkable success story for health”, the editors note these gains occurred “despite low spending on health care, a weak health system, and widespread poverty.”


The six-part series takes a comprehensive look at one of the “great mysteries of global health”, and this web link also includes podcasts and comments.
