TRIO Study Brief: Long-Acting Injections for Women’s HIV Prevention in Sub-Saharan Africa: What End-Users Think
This brief features findings from the Tablets, Ring, Injections as Options (TRIO) study, with a focus on long-acting injections as a delivery form for HIV prevention for women and a potential delivery form for MPTs.
With injections as a new biomedical HIV prevention strategy on the horizon, the TRIO study's end-user findings from women and healthcare providers, as outlined in this brief, provide a timely contribution to late-stage product development. Further, they inform market introduction considerations for rollout of injectable delivery forms for women.
TRIO was a multiphase study conducted with young women in Kenya and South Africa between 2015 and 2017 to understand their perspectives on future MPTs. It was led by RTI International with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
