Here are some links to some interesting things on the net this week:

1. The BBC takes a look at maternal mortality around the world this week. Click here for more information, including a video that shows how a simple bicycle ambulance is saving lives in Malawi.

2. My colleague Bill Savedoff blogged about the book “The Gods of Lending” on the CGD website. I started reading this book a while back, and there are some shocking details in it about the way in which the World Bank operates. The author argues that 30-40% of World Bank loans are misappropriated.

3. The Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes, normally a very technical and clinical journal, has put out a special supplement on HIV and health systems. Remarkably good stuff in there. Have a look.

    Have you seen this? Jacob Zuma looks like (hopefully) he is pushing to reverse S Africa's HIV policies
