IN THIS MONTH'S BULLETIN

 

 

Diarmid Campbell-Lendrum & Roberto Bertollini (242) discuss the disconnection between scientific evidence and public perceptions of climate change. Elizabeth Westley & Anna Glasier (243) call for better communication about emergency contraception. Matheus Roriz-Cruz et al. (244) suggest reasons why two cities in Brazil have such big differences in dengue cases. We highlight the World Health Day 2010 campaign of "1000 cities, 1000 lives" in the news section (245–246).
