About The Cover

This Somalian mother and child are emblematic of one of the major policy questions dealt with in this issue's special section (beginning on page 765) on women's health research: In developing countries, how much money should be allocated for infant health and how much for the prevention of maternal mortality? Elsewhere, the section addresses the subtle gender-based differences in patterns of disease and responses to therapy in developed nations. [Photo: Peter Menzel]
