Dear Readers,

In this 30th anniversary issue of the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, we are delighted to present the first in a series of articles on world issues pertaining to pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. These articles focus on present topics of interest to pediatric gastroenterologists, hepatologists, nutritionists, general pediatricians, and other pediatric practitioners around the world. Each article is led by a moderator and includes contributions from authors representing 6 continents. If viewed favorably by you, our readers, we intend to continue publishing articles on world issues on other topics, including global perspectives from the 6 continents. We enthusiastically encourage and welcome your suggestions for potential topics and contributors for future issues.

We hope by sharing these contributions from authors globally, we will continue to improve the care of pediatric patients, understanding the problems physicians and caregivers face. This will allow us to reflect on how far we have come and just how far we have yet to go. In this issue, we discuss the problems physicians are up against in the treatment of their patients for celiac disease, diarrhea, malnutrition, hepatitis, and issues facing health care economics and drug development, namely the use of unlicensed/off-label medicines in pediatrics.

Enjoy!

David Branski and Melvin B. Heyman
