To the Editor: Dr Kaul and colleagues1 again confirm that sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are important human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) cofactors and, with new insights on potential pathways, reinforce the importance of STI control at the population level. Notably, the study may say more about the impact of cumulative public health efforts on local STI/HIV transmission than about the effectiveness of any specific intervention.
