This report is an annual summary of research on child and adolescent health in developing countries derived from all the randomized trials in the last year.
The aim of this report by Prof Trevor Duke, is to make this information widely available to paediatricians, nurses, researchers, students and administrators in places where up-to-date health information is hard to find. The report should be helpful in reviewing treatment guidelines and clinical and public health approaches, and in teaching about paediatrics and evidence-based medicine.
This year there were 187 publications from randomised or controlled trials. This is the 14th edition of this booklet.
