Selected Readings on Health Systems_June 2011

Dear colleagues,
We thank many of you for your reactions to our call for editors. We have considerably enlarged our team with dynamic and emerging voices from all over the globe. This edition, with relatively few articles but extensive reviews, illustrates the development of Selected Readings with more emphasis on the reviews themselves. We will use the summer months to develop the archive function of the Selected Readings. That means that we will not send you a Selected Readings in July/August, but we will give you more news in September. Our aim is to enable you to retrieve the individual reviews per topic. We hope that you continue to provide us the input for this endeavor.
Enjoy your reading.
On behalf of the editorial team,
Josefien van Olmen
