New Ideas for Global Health

"Innovation frequently arises from the lessons of repeated failure, so if we are not willing to take risks and fail often, we will miss many opportunities to capture novel approaches that can transform a field. Above all, unfortunately, peer review can kill truly novel ideas because they are, by definition, peerless."
