By Barbara K. Timmons, Principal Writer-Editor, Office of Strategic Development and Communications
MSH staff members contribute to advancing and exchanging knowledge about international public health through publications like the latest “baker’s dozen” to appear so far in 2012. These include several articles on each of these topics: HIV & AIDS, pharmaceutical management, and maternal, newborn, and child health. Articles on tuberculosis, malaria, knowledge exchange, and mhealth (one each) round out this rich set of technical topics.
Would you like to stay up-to-date on publications from MSH? Peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters that include MSH authors are posted on our website in the Resource Center.
The full list of publications, with bibliographical information, appears at the end of this story.
