Can Fantasies Become Realties? The Quest for Multi-purpose Prevention Products
Multipurpose prevention technologies, or MPTs, are products designed to simultaneously prevent HIV, other STIs, and/or unintended pregnancy. Internal and external condoms are the only MPTs currently available and, while effective, they are less than desirable for many sexually active humans on the planet. Humans need and deserve a suite of options, and the more types of protection an option provides, the more likely it will be used. Our expert presenters will share updates and perspectives about the MPT research pipeline, focusing on the products closest to actual roll-out and implementation. Marvinetta Woodley-Penn of Global Girls, Inc will perform spoken word. This webinar is brought to you through a collaboration between AIDS Foundation Chicago and AVAC, with funding provided by Merck.
