The death toll from Haiti’s 2010 earthquake was at the top of our list of blogs this year, a reflection of the international attention finally being paid to Latin America’s poorest country. Other hot posts dealt with new money in Global Health for vaccines and the US Government’s Global Health Initiative, and all kinds of performance-based funding and evaluation issues. HIV prevention, drug resistance and reproductive, maternal and sexual health made multiple appearances, as did the pharmaceutical sector and its regulation.
