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.
