In May 2023, NPR launched The NPR Weekly News Quiz to see if you are paying attention to ... well, everything and anything.

Like ... A woman has filed a lawsuit against Hershey because ... (we'll give you this one: her peanut butter pumpkins lacked the cute face promised on the package!)

Here at the global health and development team, we were inspired to gin up our own little exam, because a) imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and b) even though I personally was not a fan of pop quizzes back in the day, I am a fan of online quizzes, as are millions of others with too much time on their hands.

So here we go: A quiz that tests your knowledge of some of 2023's highlights in global health and development (GHD).
