Two new articles published this week in PLOS Medicine, along with an update to our Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF)-PLoS Collection on Maternal Health.

Gabriela Gomez and colleagues developed a mathematical model of the HIV epidemic among men who have sex with men and transwomen in Lima, Peru to explore whether HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis could be a cost-effective addition to existing HIV prevention strategies.

Michael Gravett and colleagues review the burden of pregnancy-related infections, especially in low- and middle-income countries, and offer suggestions for a more effective intervention strategy.

Remember you can comment on, annotate and rate any PLOS Medicine article and see the views, citations and other indications of impact of an article on that articles metrics tab.
