An error during editing and checking has changed the sense of one section of this article by Paul Garner et al (22 August, pp 531-5). On page 532, the statement that “it is precisely these services that governments and international donors such as the United Kingdom's health and population aid programme are attempting to improve through targeted activities” was intended as a general comment and was not particularly directed at this programme. In fact, the Department for International Development UK is particularly good at working closely with partners in poor countries to promote uptake of evidence by policymakers and practitioners, within the wider context of efforts to ensure that healthcare systems are more responsive to the needs and interests of poor people.
