Together for MPTs


Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs):

HIV/STI Prevention + Contraception = Better Protection

MPTs are an innovative class of products that deliver varied combinations of HIV prevention, other STI prevention, and contraception and will improve the lives of women and families worldwide. Our international initiative is advancing the MPT field to realize a suite of products that will address women’s diverse needs and preferences.

Innovative female-initiated MPTs now in development will allow women to:

  • Better plan and space their children.
  • Avoid HIV and the impact of unintended pregnancy, including maternal and infant mortality and morbidity.
  • Avert the risks of infertility and cancer that can result when some STIs are left untreated.
