"It's all in a decade's work": A Ten-Year Retrospective Report on the IMPT
10 years ago, in 2009, the multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs) field was formalized alongside the launch of the Initiative for MPTs (IMPT) – a product neutral backbone organization established to facilitate action-oriented collaborations aimed at driving this new field forward. In this 10-year retrospective report, we highlight advances in the
MPT field that have synergistically combined to bring MPTs continually closer to a reality that will improve the lives of women and girls worldwide.
