Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) are a fast-growing area in women’s sexual and reproductive health. On November 12, AVAC and CAMI Health co-hosted a webinar: MPT Acceptability in Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa.

The webinar summarzied methods and key findings from the market research study conducted by Ipsos Healthcare, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to assess the acceptability of multipurpose options among women in Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa.

The webinar discussed:

  • What women in Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa shared about sexual behavior, contraceptives and HIV prevention needs—and how this information will be used to shape the MPT agenda.
  • What the research found about the acceptability of four potential MPTs (injectables, implants, intra-vaginal film, intra-vaginal ring).

Jeff Lucas and Moushira El-Sahn from Ipsos Healthcare summarized methods and key findings from the market research data, and Bethany Young-Holt from CAMI Health moderated the discussion.

This call was one of the latest updates in the MPT field. Here are some other resources of note:
