PLoS Medicine Articles Look at HIV Care Disengagement, Development Aid, Mental Health

January 9, 2013

PLoS Medicine Publications Assistant Michael Morris summarizes several articles published this week in the journal in this PLoS "Speaking of Medicine" blog post. One study "investigate[s] reasons for missed visits and provide[s] an explanation for disengagement from care," and an accompanying perspective piece comments on the findings, he writes. Another article looks at "whether giving development aid to governments leads to reductions in their own domestic health financing," and a perspective piece "argue[s] for more data and better statistical methods to measure aid displacement," he writes. And as part of an ongoing series on Global Mental Health Practice, researchers provide a case study from Georgia on mental health care reforms, Morris notes (1/8).
