  • Nature News has a fantastic profile of Sheik Humarr Khan and other public health workers as they fought against Ebola in Sierra Leone.
  • Science is not enough to stop Ebola – we need social change as well.
  • We may have made huge progress in the fight against HIV, but there is a problem with the often-repeated sentiment that as long as HIV+ individuals take their medication, they will be fine. Mosaic has a fantastic piece profiling four people living with HIV in the UK – their stories of daily life, dealing with physical and mental health issues, are eye-opening.
