MPTs & the IMPT Platform
The MPTs & the IMPT Platform is a PowerPoint presentation created by the IMPT Secretariat at CAMI Health to help our colleagues integrate MPTs into their talks and presentations. Please email IMPT@cami-health.org with any feedback on how you used this information.
Word on the Street: African Women Share Their Reproductive Health Stories
Young women in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are disproportionately impacted by HIV, other STIs, and unintended pregnancy and are among the most underserved populations for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in the world. However, epidemiological data alone tell an incomplete story. This mapping tool captures authentic narratives from interviews with 49 adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), key influencers (grandmothers and male partners), and technical experts in South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. By centering the voices and lived experiences of these stakeholders on an immersive platform, it serves as an advocacy tool for the meaningful inclusion of the needs of the most marginalized in the development of SRH prevention products, particularly multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs) – products designed to simultaneously prevent HIV, other STIs, and/or unintended pregnancy.
Word on the Street was made possible with the generous support from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, through USAID, under Envision FP‘s PROMISE Collaboration.
MPT Target Population Identification Mapping Tool
This interactive map illustrates the overlap in HIV prevalence in women and the total addressable market for contraception (women currently using a modern method as well as those who plan to use contraception in the future) to illustrate the hot spots where an MPT that combines HIV prevention and contraception might have the greatest impact. This map focuses on Sub-Saharan African women aged 15 to 24, and was updated in May 2019 to include the contraceptive method mix.

The promise of MPTs
An overview of field-wide priorities and gaps the IMPT identified in consultation with multidisciplinary stakeholders were presented at the NICHD Contraceptive Development Meeting. These technical consultations led to the prioritization of identifying strategic actions for combining hormonal contraceptives and antiretrovirals. While this activity focuses on female-initiated approaches, it is also expected to inform male-initiated approaches.
Critical actions to achieve the value potential of MPTs for prevention of HIV, other STIs, and unintended pregnancies among young women
Held at the 2018 International AIDS Conference, this interactive workshop involved a panel of influential interdisciplinary leaders and experts who discussed the current status of the MPT field and the priorities of funding organizations. It also included an energetic dialogue about ways to encourage the exploration of the funding landscape to further accelerate the growth of the field.
MPT Investment Case Slide Deck
This slide deck is intended to be used by product developers, current MPT funders, and others working in the MPT space to “make the case” for investing in MPTs. The slides can be used as a complete presentation or select slides can be used within presentations being developed for different audiences.

Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs): Innovation to Protect Women’s Reproductive Health in South Africa.
This downloadable fact sheet and supporting messaging framework were developed to support advocates in South Africa as they raise awareness and build support for multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs) for sexual and reproductive health in South Africa. These companion documents were designed specifically for use with national and regional government stakeholders, the research and scientific communities, and nongovernmental organizations. MPT advocates in South Africa should view the following messages as a menu of options. Each message is designed to be a complete thought that can be used by itself or as part of a longer narrative. MPT advocates can, therefore, choose individual messages or a series of messages to be used for a particular communication or advocacy effort depending on the audience and purpose to help advance support for MPTs in South Africa.
MPTs for Reproductive Health
This downloadable factsheet was developed to provide an engaging and concise tool to support MPT advocacy and communication efforts. This factsheet on Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) for Reproductive Health provides information on the need for MPTs and describes MPT products currently in development.
