At the core of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s extraordinary life was a simple conviction: “Women belong,” she said, “in all places where decisions are being made.”

“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” - RGB Rest, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.💔🖤

My piece in @bmj_latest and work leading to our living systematic review https://t.co/QpMvpLcRIO: Efficient, timely, and funded living evidence syntheses on maternal and newborn health… https://t.co/qhBfr1yAYm @unibirm_MDS @unibirmingham @Richard_D_Riley

I would like to think that the “2 beer and a puppy” test could work for academic collaborations as well. https://t.co/ER5BnOyXHz

Only evidence for accuracy of UK-Rapid Test Consortium Covid-19 AbC test is flawed Over a week ago with @sarahboseley I asked for transparent reporting of RTC study that says test has 99.40% accuracy But NOTHING has been made available or explained 1/16 https://t.co/wVuIRIgD4c

Fantastic work from @JavierZa67 as chief statistician and @elena_stallings researcher on this living systematic review https://t.co/utgPyK6qzS

Pregnant and recently pregnant women are less likely to manifest covid-19 related symptoms of fever and myalgia than non-pregnant women of similar age and are potentially more likely to need intensive care treatment, find @thangaratinam and colleagues https://t.co/Ye8rQUJIij

Truly shocking 😔 Countries with the highest estimated numbers of health workers who have died from COVID-19 Mexico (1,320) USA (1,077) UK (649) Brazil (634) Russia (631) India (573) South Africa (240) Italy (188) Peru (183) Iran (164) Egypt (159) https://t.co/KBeJlC7RQ9

This living systematic review on Covid-19 in pregnancy is possible thx 2 colleagues @IMSR_UoB @UoB_IAHR @BWH_NHS, medical students @unibirm_MDS, researchers @WHO @HRPresearch @QMULBartsTheLon @NHSBartsHealth, methodologists @Bioest_HRC @cochranecollab, international collaborators https://t.co/jQX2LPZTOt

Pregnant women seen in hospitals with covid-19 are less likely to show symptoms, and seem to be at increased risk of needing admission to an intensive care unit than non-pregnant women of similar age, finds a new @bmj_latest study https://t.co/ch6ZU8MAag @thangaratinam

Working with the #PregCOVLSR team has been an invaluable experience! Check out our first publication in @bmj_latest to get an insight into the impact of covid on pregnant women through the largest LSR on the subject! Thank you @thangaratinam for the support and guidance 😊 https://t.co/y27llLsIC9

I've thoroughly enjoyed being part of the amazing team who worked on #PregCOVLSR published in @bmj_latest, helping to inform future management for pregnant women with COVID-19. Thanks for the excellent supervision @thangaratinam, @JoAllotey and @elena_stallings! @IMSR_UoB @WHO https://t.co/H5qfs3XI4S

Despite the fact that noncommunicable diseases are responsible for more than 80% of worldwide deaths, global financing for #NCDs is severely limited, receiving less than 2% of all health funding.  https://t.co/dRtJGrbvou https://t.co/NJoNcVxHDG
