The BMJ has published a special supplement containing 15 articles co-authored by the World Health Organization.
The supplement focuses on women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health. All 15 articles are open access, and can be collectively downloaded as a PDF file.
When accessing each article separately,except the article entitled “Effective interventions and strategies for improving early child development”, one does not need to sign up for a free trial with The BMJ.
The articles are intended to share the evidence base that has helped inform the development of a new Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, which will be launched at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on 26 September 2015.
