This week in PLoS Medicine: Cost effective strategy for HIV prevention; Analysis of immune responses to Plasmodium falciparum; Malaria—Linking knowledge with action

Read the new papers published in PLoS Medicine this week, including a Research Article that finds circumcising newborn boys is a way to prevent HIV infection in later life and is more cost-effective than circumcising adult males. This article is accompanied by a related Perspective in which the author declares: Neonatal MC should therefore be considered a priority in comprehensive HIV prevention plans for southern Africa.

Also published this week is another Research Article – based on information from different studies that attempt to link specific antibody responses to incidence of Plasmodium falciparum malaria – that helps identify antigens worth advancing as vaccine candidates and a Policy Forum – the third in a four-part series on the changing nature of global health institutions – that explores the changing global health system for malaria research and the delivery of research products to those at risk of the disease.

You can comment on, annotate, and rate this week’s PLoS Medicine articles and any of the others in the archive.
