Welcome to the second issue of UNAIDS HIV this month!
HIV This Week first appeared in May 2006. It was an important innovation for UNAIDS – designed to be a readily accessible source of the latest science on HIV, presented in a user-friendly format.  One of the key features of HIV This Week – and what set it apart from other services that disseminate science abstracts – was the editorial comment that accompanied each abstract – enabling readers to situate emerging information in the panoply of HIV science and pointing them to the significance of the findings.  HIV This Week was the brainchild of the Chief Scientific Adviser to UNAIDS, Dr Catherine Hankins.
Extremely rapidly, HIV This Week found an audience.  Of all the products that come out of UNAIDS, it remains one of the most loyally followed, with appreciative feedback coming in regularly from all corners of the earth.  Cate Hankins retired from UNAIDS in 2011 and, after her final issue in May 2012, the responsibility for HIV This Week passed into new hands.  After a short hiatus it was renamed HIV this month and is positioned as the centrepiece of a new UNAIDS platform for scientific exchange.
From the new team, we want to thank Dr Catherine Hankins as the founder of HIV This Week.  We hope the editors and guest editors of HIV this month will be able to live up to her legacy of editorial excellence and will continue to meet the standards of insight and liveliness that she set.  We also hope that Cate will appear in HIV this month in the future as a key figure in the world of HIV science from her new role as Deputy Director, Science at the Amsterdam Institute for Global Health and Development and Honorary Professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
This month, we have asked Dr David Hoos to be our Guest Editor and to share his comments on the month’s papers.  David is an internist and public health physician and the Director of Implementation at ICAP, a major PEPFAR funded implementing partner located at the Mailman School of Public Health of Columbia University in New York.  ICAP is providing support for HIV, tuberculosis, and reproductive health services at facility, district, province and national levels in over 18 countries.  He served as Treatment Advocacy Advisor at UNAIDS in 2011, and has also served on numerous WHO and Global Fund panels. 
Enjoy David’s insights.
