HIV this month. Issue no. 5. May 2017

Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the May edition of HIV this month in 2017!

This month, we have selected papers that explore some of the longer term consequences of treatment.  How do we measure quality of life? Does behaviour change in people on treatment, or in men who have been circumcised? Should we worry about bone density in people on long-term treatment and who is most at risk?

As always, HIV testing remains a key topic, and encouraging papers describe evidence for task sharing.

Several papers focus on prevention. Some exciting preliminary news from London; successful approaches to increase condom use; plenty on the challenges of understanding HIV transmission and assessing the success of interventions. 

We highlight papers on people with disabilities and also transgender women – both are populations that need more attention within the HIV response.

Ethical considerations of consent to participate in research and a study on circulating types of high risk human papilloma viruses complete this month’s edition.

Happy reading and please let us have your feedback!
