... The US Government’s PEPFAR program has invested more than $30 billion in the care, treatment and prevention of HIV AIDS. While many studies show benefit in controlling the epidemic, HIV / AIDS is but one of many illnesses that make up the total burden of illness in these countries. There are few studies that have looked at whether this large sum of money has benefited or harmed other aspects of the health system. For example, has the focus on HIV AIDS allowed for much of the health worker training to “spill over” and benefit patients with other diseases? Or, has the massive investment lead to a shifting of health care workers away from care of patients with non-HIV diseases. There are some key questions that are important in understanding how rapid scale-up of HIV services affect non-targeted services and the health system at different levels in Uganda.

... These data are derived products from the 2015 field campaign of the "Sea State and Boundary Layer Physics of the Emerging Arctic Ocean" program. The campaign occurred during autumn, when refreezing of the ocean surface was a dominant signal. These data include collections from the Research Vessel "Sikuliaq", as well as numerous autonomous buoys. The main results of the program are described in a special issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research - Oceans.

... Regional-scale tree die-off events driven by drought and warming and associated pests and pathogens have occurred recently on all forested continents and are projected to increase in frequency and extent with future warming. Within areas where tree mortality has occurred, ecological, hydrological and meteorological consequences are increasingly being documented. However, the potential for tree die-off to impact vegetation processes and related carbon dynamics in areas remote to where die-off occurs has rarely been systematically evaluated, particularly for multiple distinct regions within a given continent. Such remote impacts can occur when climate effects of local vegetation change are propagated by atmospheric circulation—the phenomena of ‘ecoclimate teleconnections’. We simulated tree die-off events in the 13 most densely forested US regions (selected from the 20 US National Ecological Observatory Network [NEON] Domains) and found that tree die-off even for smaller regions has potential to affect climate and hence Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) in disparate regions (NEON Domains), either positively or negatively. Some regions exhibited strong teleconnections to several others, and some regions were relatively sensitive to tree loss regardless of what other region the tree loss occurred in. For the US as a whole, loss of trees in the Pacific Southwest—an area undergoing rapid tree die-off—had the largest negative impact on remote US GPP whereas loss of trees in the Mid Atlantic had the largest positive impact. This research lays a foundation for hypotheses that identify how the effects of tree die-off (or other types of tree loss such as deforestation) can ricochet across regions by revealing hot-spots of forcing and response. Such modes of connectivity have direct applicability for improving models of climate change impacts and for developing more informed and coordinated carbon accounting across regions.
