A couple of years ago, European researchers began studying more than a thousand couples, gay and straight, in which one member had been infected with H.I.V. and the other hadn’t. These couples weren’t using condoms. But the infected partner was taking antiretrovirals successfully; the virus was suppressed, undetectable in the blood. The researchers published their results in July 2016 in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Launched in 2005 by President George W. Bush and expanded by President Barack Obama, the US President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) has been one of the main sources of funding for malaria prevention interventions in sub-Saharan Africa. A new report in PLoS Medicine shows that the PMI has reduced child mortality and the burden of malaria in those countries that have received its funding, primarily by increasing access to insecticide-treated nets, artemisinin-based combination therapy, and indoor residual spraying.
