Randomised Trials in Child Health in Developing Countries 2010

Scroll to the bottom of the page for the booklets on randomised trials in children. These summarizes some of the latest research on child health in developing countries: evidence derived from all the randomized trials published over the last year. The aim is to make this information widely available to paediatricians, child health nurses, midwives, researchers, students and administrators in places where up-to-date health information is hard to find. It is hoped that such information will be helpful in reviewing treatment guidelines, clinical practice and public health approaches, and in teaching about paediatrics and evidence-based medicine.

The International Child Health Review Collaboration is a multicentre project to deliver the evidence basis behind World Health Organisation guidelines for use by paediatric doctors, nurses and other child health workers in Developing Countries

This article describes the evolution and challenges of mHealth, discusses the role of mHealth in achieving Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5, and addresses the potential impact of mHealth for midwives
