The PLOS Medicine Editors announce a new Reporting Guidelines Collection— an open access compilation  of reporting guidelines, commentary, and related research on guidelines from across PLOS journals— to coincide with the Seventh International Congress on Peer Review and Biomedical Publication to be held in Chicago from September 8th to 10th, 2013.

Robert Grant and colleagues report that patients with a diagnosis of dementia have approximately three times the rate of diagnosis of urinary incontinence, and more than four times the rate of fecal incontinence. Furthermore, patients with dementia and incontinence were more likely to receive incontinence medications and indwelling catheters than those with incontinence but without dementia.

Scott Kellerman and colleagues argue that the scope of the current HIV elimination agenda must be broadened in order to ensure access to care and treatment for all children living with HIV. Current initiatives focus on interventions within the traditional prevention cascade which involve prevention of mother-to-child transmission; an expanded agenda must address challenges around reducing vertical transmission and ensuring access to appropriate HIV testing, care, and treatment for all affected children.
