Two new articles published this week in PLoS Medicine. There is also an update on recent news coverage on the homepage.

In a qualitative study reported by Olav Lindqvist and colleagues, the range of nonpharmacological caregiving activities used in the last days of a patient’s life are described.

Bohdan Nosyk and Julio Montaner argue that the cost-effectiveness of HAART roll out has been significantly underestimated because economic analyses haven’t yet taken into account the beneficial impact of HAART on HIV transmission.
