BMC Medicine will soon be launching a new article collection guest edited by Prof Alimuddin Zumla and Prof Ibrahim Abubakar and focused on all aspects of migrant and refugee health. This collection was inspired by the unprecedented migrant and refugee crisis we are currently witnessing on a global level. We are seeking submissions of research articles on infectious and non-communicable disease research, tropical medicine, and global health policy that have both broad interest and high clinical and public health relevance due to their impact on migrant health.
Caesarean section rates in excess of recommended thresholds may pose risks to mothers and infants due to non-medically necessary procedures, and rising healthcare costs. Our study published in BMC Medicine shows that a training program for clinicians resulted in very favorable results: better quality of care for mothers and infants, and major cost savings.
