Bridging Gaps Between HIV, Maternal and Reproductive Healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa: Evidence for Action


Guest Editors:

Kendall, Tamil; Bärnighausen, Till; Fawzi, Wafaie W.; Langer, Ana

The articles in this themed supplement highlight the need to improve and integrate HIV, reproductive and maternal healthcare to address the HIV epidemic, reduce maternal mortality and morbidity, and promote the overall health and well-being of women in sub-Saharan Africa. Developed as follow-up to an international meeting convened by the Maternal Health Task Force at the Harvard School of Public Health, the United States Agency for International Development and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in June 2013 to identify priority knowledge gaps at the critical intersection between HIV, maternal and reproductive health, the supplement 1) provides empirical evidence about challenges and opportunities for integration and scale-up, 2) identifies how improving clinical care and models of service delivery, strengthening health systems and addressing social dynamics can contribute to better outcomes; and 3) maps future research directions.

New Focus Area: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Hepatitis C virus (HCV)

JAIDS is now accepting manuscripts for a new focus area of interest: HBV and HCV  

The investment in HIV research has allowed us to make huge advances in controlling a formerly brutal epidemic. Now, what we've learned from HIV is being applied to hepatitis viruses, both HBV and especially HCV where curative treatments are on the verge of transforming that epidemic as well. JAIDS believes there is a clear synergy in these research efforts and that on all levels these research efforts are vital to share across the boundaries of interest of specific viral infections. JAIDS looks forward to publishing the best of this work and calls for manuscripts in HCV and HBV research as well as in ongoing work against HIV infection.
