- "Designing an Equitable Strategy for Allocating Antiretroviral Treatments," PLoS Medicine: Andreas Capron -- director of the World Health Organization's Department of Ethics, Trade, Human Rights and Health Law -- and Alexander Reis, an associate professional officer in the department, evaluate the study "Designing Equitable Antiretroviral Allocation Strategies in Resource-Constrained Countries," which was published in the February issue of PLoS Medicine (Capron/Reis, PLoS Medicine, March 2005).
- "Predictors and Consequences of Negative Physician Attitudes Toward HIV-Infected Injection Drug Users," Archives of Internal Medicine: The study, conducted by Lin Ding of the Department of Health Care Policy at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and colleagues, examines possible associations between U.S. physicians' attitudes toward HIV-positive people who are injection drug users and the quality of care these patients receive. The researchers conclude that negative attitudes may lead to "less-than-optimal" care for injection drug users (Ding et al., Archives of Internal Medicine, 3/28).
