Abstract

In the Journal’s editorial of March 2019, I alluded to the pressing and broad (no pun intended) issue of gender inequality in the domain of leadership representation in Endocrinology. It would seem that poor representation is also prevalent in the value which allied disciplines offer and the integrated and multidisciplinary approach to patient care is often overlooked. While the Journal continues to strive to attract “cutting edge” submissions, it should also offer wider comment appropriate to (usually lack of ) involvement and from (more assertive input) allied disciplines. This is especially relevant in the context of healthcare delivery in developing countries where both doctor shortage and concomitant task shifting amongst healthcare personnel is often the norm.
