Time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly review of what’s new and noteworthy in the peer-reviewed literature. This is a particularly good list–there’s just so much that’s interesting in the journals right now. As always, email me if you want the word doc. Otherwise the embedded doc should have working hyperlinks (thank you [...]
Time once again for Articles of Note, some of the research that has caught my eye from peer-reviewed journals in the field.

Yesterday, Fresh Air featured the upcoming Frontline documentary, Endgame: AIDS in Black America, which made me realize I needed to remind FHO readers that we have a clinical guide, updated last night, on this issue. Add to this a question on nPEP I received yesterday, along with the newly approved HIV home testing kit, and [...]
