[Comment] Offline: Why science should matter more to global health

A brief experiment in global health comes to an end this week. On Sept 26, the iERG (the thankfully short acronym given to the independent Expert Review Group on Information and Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health) hands its fourth and final report to WHO’s Director-General, Margaret Chan. The iERG is a creation of the Commission on Information and Accountability for Women’s and Children’s Health (CoIA). CoIA was, in turn, the product of Ban Ki-moon’s signature global health initiative, Every Woman Every Child.
