Initiative for Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (IMPT)
2017 ANNUAL REPORT
By the Numbers
Multipurpose prevention technologies, or MPTs, are an innovative class of products that deliver varied combinations of HIV prevention, other STI prevention, and contraception and have the potential to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide.
An inaugural meeting organized by CAMI Health in 2009 launched the MPT field. Following that first meeting, it was determined that an organization unassociated with any specific MPT product development program would be the most effective leader of the IMPT. CAMI Health was selected to fill this role and has continued to maintain its product-neutrality, focusing on broad assessments and strategy development for the MPT field.
Eight pathogens are linked to the greatest incidence of sexually transmitted infection worldwide. 4 are currently curable: syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis. The other 4 are viral infections and are incurable: hepatitis B, herpes simplex virus (HSV or herpes), HIV, and human papillomavirus (HPV).
With a small core staff at CAMI Health, Secretariat to the IMPT, we understand the importance of a lean structure, and low overhead costs – highly efficient, yet effective project management to maximize global health impact.
The number of new HIV infections among young women (ages 15-24 years) were 44 percent higher than they were among young men in the same age group.
Unintended pregnancies carry public health risks associated with negative maternal or child health outcomes.
Women in developing regions who do not want to get pregnant, but who are not using a modern contraceptive method need more options.
This is only among the four most prevalent sexually transmitted infections: chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and trichomoniasis.
