The Lancet Global Health is The Lancet's first gold open-access title and focuses on original research, commentary, correspondence and blogs on topics including maternal and child health, infectious and noncommunicable diseases, mental health, and more. The Editor is Zoë Mullan.

The INDEPTH Network comprises 49 health and demographic surveillance systems (HDSSs) that monitor the lives of nearly 4 million individuals in 20 low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs). The HDSSs generate and publish robust population-based data on topics such as fertility, migration, mortality, and socioeconomic conditions. These data are needed at local, national, and global levels for setting health and population priorities and testing progress against them. HDSSs are also platforms for clinical and health intervention trials.
