With international efforts to attain UN Millennium Development Goal 4, which emphasizes reducing early childhood mortality, many more young children will now live beyond their 5th birthday and so enter into an age group that currently receives little notice within global health policy.

In the lead-up to PLOS Medicine's 10 year anniversary in October this year, in their first editorial of 2014, the PLOS Medicine Editors highlight the health needs of a group that deserves more attention—pre-adolescent children, including 10 year olds—by issuing a call for papers on research that address the health needs of this group.
