Yes! Yes! We soon may have a ring for our vaginas! I know what you are thinking; vaginal rings have been here since sliced bread. True, but what’s new about this one is that it will provide protection from HIV. Future rings will also include protection from unintended pregnancies and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), too. And when that ring is available, I am putting it in! Because I like my vagina, and I want to stay healthy.

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

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.
