The Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes for Health organized the public presentation of the largest coordinated publishing effort in medicine - Global Theme Issue on Poverty and Human Development. The Global Theme Issue was organized by the Council of Science Editors, and brought together 235 journals from 37 countries, which simultaneously published more than 800 articles about research from more than 100 countries on October 22, 2007. At the NIH presentation, the lead speaker was Professor Ana Marusic, MD, PhD, editor of the Croatian Medical Journal and current president of the Council of Science Editors.
At the NIH event, seven of the most outstanding articles from these journals were presented, addressing critical issues of global health research and policy and examining interventions reduce health-care inequities among the poor. These articles were selected by a panel of NIH and CSE experts, and the subject areas included: childbirth safety, HIV/AIDS, malaria treatment, food insufficiency and sexual behavior, interventions to improve child survival, physician brain drain from the developing world, and influenza's impact on children. The articles were published in outstanding journals - BMJ, AIDS Patient Care and STDs, American Journal of Public Health, PLoS Medicine, JAMA, Journal of Infectious Diseases, and Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Croatian research in this area faired well in the selection process for the global presentation.
