Preferences for Multipurpose Technology and Non-oral Methods of Antiretroviral Therapy Among Women Living With HIV in Western Kenya: A Survey Study

Understanding interests in and preferences for multipurpose technology (MPT) for the co-administration of contraception and antiretroviral therapy (ART) and alternative, non-oral ART methods among women living with HIV (WLHIV) is vital to successful implementation of future treatment options, such as long-acting injectable ART. Most WLHIV in western Kenya are interested in MPT for HIV treatment and contraception. Prior exposure to contraceptive implants or injectables appears to predict interest in similar methods of MPT and non-oral ART. Developers of MPT and non-oral ART methods should strongly consider WLHIV’s preferences, including their changing reproductive desires.
