No Health Without Research
Material for a not yet published World Health Report 2012
PLOS Medicine "In January 2011 the PLOS Medicine editors announced a collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) on the theme of research for better health. Submissions were invited to the WHO/PLOS collection “No Health Without Research”, which was intended to culminate in 2012 to coincide with the release of the 2012 World Health Report by WHO, which would also address the same topic. The collection's theme is oriented around the fact that decisions on healthcare are still made without a solid grounding in research evidence, and an impetus is required for this state of affairs to change. In light of the interest in the collection, it is disappointing to learn now that the 2012 World Health Report will not exist, at least as originally envisaged."
