“It finally happened! We had sex! And how romantic that it was on Valentine’s Day, right?” Jen, one of the first friends I made in college, could barely contain herself as she shared this news while walking with me to the university café. She then hesitated, “The only thing is, he didn’t have a condom. Do you think I’ll be okay?”

MPT target product profiles

Monday, 22 January 2018 Tags // clinical, development, process, product, regulatory, target-setting, TPP

A critical function of the IMPT Secretariat is to serve as a knowledge manager for the MPT field. In this way, we collect and disseminate MPT-relevant resources, as well as synthesize data and stakeholder expertise into useful tools and frameworks in order to inform future work within the MPT field. While the IMPT Secretariat continues to develop new resources to meet the needs of an evolving field, we want to highlight a tool – originally developed in 2015 – that is still relevant to stakeholders in the MPT field today: generalized Target Product Profiles (TPPs) for intravaginal ring (IVR) MPTs and long-acting injectable MPTs.

ICYMI: Discussion on end-user research for MPT R&D

Thursday, 21 December 2017 Tags // challenges, end-user, HIV, methods, prevention, product, reproductive health, research, women

At this point, we do not likely need to convince you that if you are aiming to develop and introduce an MPT product, incorporating end-user research into the process is a good idea, especially if you want it to have a positive public health impact. We at the IMPT Secretariat are delighted that end-user research has become an increased focus in the contraception, HIV prevention, and global health spaces. It is now critical that enthusiasm for end-user research in these fields is applied effectively – that is, employs the right methods with the right stakeholders during the right stages, asks questions that fill knowledge gaps rather than ‘reinvent the wheel,’ and otherwise addresses past challenges experienced with this type of research.
