Today, on World Sexual Health Day, we at the IMPT reflect on how to work with partners to improve sexual health across the globe. There are many things that could be done, many different approaches, and many people we can work with towards this goal. Here, at the IMPT, we see multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs) to be one such promising strategy with the potential to improve the sexual health – and lives – of women and their families across the globe.

MPTs 101: Why youth providers need to know this term

Monday, 13 November 2017 Tags // prevention, product development, reproductive health, sexual health

If you are an advocate for youth health and wellbeing, you need to know about multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs) – innovative tools on the horizon to address a gap in the sexual and reproductive health of women and girls. It’s a long name, but there’s a reason behind that. First, these tools are called multipurpose prevention because they simultaneously protect against various combinations of HIV, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) AND unintended pregnancy. Second, the add-on of technologies illustrates that the field is developing a range of product types that deliver prevention in innovative ways. This includes intravaginal rings, vaginal inserts, films and patches, vaginal gels combined with barrier methods, implants, oral tablets, long-acting injectables…the list goes on!
