[Correspondence] Reforming public and global health research in Germany

The Lancet Editorial1 commends the report2 from two German scientific academies and the union of the German academies of sciences and humanities about reforming public health in Germany as an “invaluable road map”. The report2 finds weaknesses in Germany’s public and global health efforts, ascribing them to a fragmentation of research activities and people and institutions engaged in public health. It suggests four scenarios for reform that are all aimed towards an increasingly centralised or coordinated structure.
