Together for MPTs

 

Collaborations

Collaboration is the most effective path to broad social impact. Working together across sectors, disciplines, funding and research silos and public private divides is a smart and efficient way to share findings and expertise to reduce redundancies and maximize impact.

We coordinate convenings to share research, best practices and align agendas. And we serve as the Coordinator of the Initiative for Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (IMPT) a coalition of researchers, biotech developers, advocates and providers working to promote innovative prevention strategies that enhance reproductive and sexual health in the U.S. and the globe.

We take collaboration to the next level by leading collective impact collaborations. Rather than relying on the patchwork results of multiple organizations working on their own towards the same ends, Collective Impact Collaborations work to harness the collective expertise and streamline and coordinate efforts across sectors in order to maximize investment, reduce redundancy and more swiftly bring about change. In our case, the social impact is the creation and dissemination of MPTs and the resulting reduction in unintended pregnancy, HIV and other STIs and their resulting complications.
