A Lancet editorial (1) has commented on the Bamako meeting and the Call for Action. The journal was a partner in the meeting and has now published a number of articles refering to it.
The editorial takes a very positive view of the meeting saying that delegates dealt with the issues with concern, comiitment and creativity. It takes the view that substantial advances have been made on the previous meeting in Mexico and concludes that Bamako was, ‘an example of what can be achieved through patient and persistent engagement. 2009 must be the year when the promises of Bamako are acted upon.’
