Many papers in this month's issue address the special theme of strengthening the linkages between sexual and reproductive health and HIV. In the lead editorial, Michel Sidibé & Kent Buse (806) explain why these links are crucial to public health.

In a second editorial, Diarmid Campbell-Lendrum & Manjula Lusti-Narasimhan (807), commenting on the paper by Leo Bryant et al. (852-857), discuss the controversial issue of linking climate change with family planning.
