Combination Prevention

Expanded high-impact prevention is needed to bring the epidemic to a conclusive end.

Combination or high-impact prevention is a set of strategically-selected interventions that matches the needs of a given country or community--and is delivered at the scale needed to make an impact. It means doing less of something and far more of others. It means making tough decisions and measuring impact. Above all, it means moving with clarity and speed.

There are emerging global definitions of what combination prevention is, and evolving models of what it can achieve. AVAC works with advocates to define what combination prevention means in a given context, track country and donor alignment with a combination prevention strategy and ensure that there is an implementation science agenda to fill in gaps in knowledge.

What We're Reading

The majority of cisgender MSM and TGW who exchange sex and participate in this study are interested in PrEP, report taking sufficient PrEP, and stay on PrEP, though additional efforts are needed to address community misinformation and stigma. This novel multilevel, open-label study design and person-time approach will allow evaluation of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of combination prevention intervention in the contexts of both organized sex work and exchanged sex.
