Ups & Downs in the Field: Setting an Agenda Together for HIV Prevention in 2022

January 13, 2022

On Thursday, January 13, we held Ups & Downs in the Field: Setting an Agenda Together for HIV Prevention in 2022, a webinar examining the latest advances, disappointments and opportunities in HIV prevention. The webinar featured a lively discussion with Rachel Baggaley from the World Health Organization; Linda-Gail Bekker from South Africa’s Desmond Tutu Health Foundation; Grace Kumwenda of Pakachere Institute of Health and Development Communication; and Kenneth Mwehonge, the new executive director of Coalition for Health Promotion and Social Development (HEPS-Uganda) that was moderated by AVAC's Mitchell Warren.

The webinar provided an opportunity to address key questions including: where we are with the introduction of injectable CAB-LA and the Dapivirine Vaginal Ring; the development status of islatravir as a monthly pill and injectable lenacapavir as promising new PrEP agents whose trials were put on hold late in 2021; and how to ensure HIV prevention, and equitable access to innovation, do not fall further behind; and much more.
