How We Work

The IMPT is a collective impact collaboration comprised of members from across the globe who share a commitment towards developing new MPT methods that address women’s SRH needs. More than a coalition, the initiative is a long-term collaboration designed to bridge funding and research silos that pose barriers to innovating combined prevention.  

IMPT members comprise working groups, sub-working groups, committees and advisory groups, overseen by a steering committee. As Secretariat, CAMI is the backbone of the IMPT, serving as a neutral coordinator of all of the moving pieces of the collaboration in order to:

  • Create and advance a shared agenda
  • Coordinate the working groups, ensuring a high level of communication and transparency to maximize collective efforts
  • Identify and engage individuals and organizations who are doing work relevant to MPTs
  • Provide tools and guidance to help inform funders, developers and other stakeholders
  • Work to optimize and enhance MPT funding
