This week in PLoS Medicine: SARS, HPV, and Influenza

Read the new papers published in PLoS Medicine this week, including a Research Article that reviewed the published epidemiological literature on SARS and shows that less than a quarter of papers were published during the epidemic itself, suggesting that the research published lagged substantially behind the need for it, and a second Research Article that identifies the parental factors associated with HPV vaccine uptake in a school-based program in Canada based on the analysis of a phone survey.

Also published this week, is a Policy Forum – from PLoS Medicine’s series on Global Health Diplomacy – that provides a case study of the difficult negotiations to increase equitable access to vaccines for highly pathogenic avian influenza A (H5N1) and pandemic 2009 influenza A (H1N1).
