Fwd: Your correspondence to The Lancet

29 June 2015

Dear Dr Horton,

Perhaps there has been some mistake.  

I have informed The Lancet of a significant error in its own editorial coverage as well as in contributions from others.  

World leaders at the Millennium Summit did not adopt the generally easier 1990 baseline or  "proportions of people in developing regions".  

I realise this may be difficult for you. 

I think it is clear that authors, readers and those most affected deserve the truth


Yours sincerely,

Matt Berkley.
