The Editorial in the June 2014 issue is an Editors' Choice, written by our Review Editor Edison Vidal, who not only edits reviews but is also a physician specializing in geriatrics. The Review section features a systematic review on Frailty in the Elderly and the implications for collective health.
The Perspectives section discusses two different topics. The number of articles submitted to CSP in the field of oral health has increased substantially and definitely merits special reflection. Meanwhile, the other article discusses palliative care, still a relatively rare theme in CSP.
The rest of this issue covers a wide range of subjects and geographic territories: indigenous health, cardiovascular risk, legislation, expenditures in Brazil's Unified National Health System, and articles from Angola and Mexico.
Enjoy the read!
