Call for papers: Stunting, undernutrition and obesity: the triple threat of childhood malnutrition

We are now welcoming submissions for a new article collection on childhood malnutrition. We invite primary research articles and front-matter content investigating the problems and underlying mediating factors of this global health issue, and highlighting the impact of potential solutions.

Research: Economic analysis of febrile children attending an NHS emergency department

An economic evaluation examines resource use, service costs, and health outcomes of pediatric fever and emergency department (ED) attendance, finding that the use of ED resources is highest among infants (less than 3 months) and those infants managed by lesser experienced doctors, independent of clinical severity.

Correspondence: 15 years of progress in pediatric severe malaria research

Andrea Conroy and colleagues discuss the heavy clinical burden of severe malaria in African children, providing an overview of advances in understanding pathogenesis and identifying priorities to further reduce malaria-associated mortality.

Research: Real-time modelling of a diphtheria outbreak in Bangladesh

Applying transmission dynamics models to forecast – in real time – the potential scale of a diphtheria outbreak amongst Rohingya refugees, to help inform healthcare response plans and resource needs. Practical implications for future outbreak response are also discussed.
