This panel session highlighted that MPTs would provide a greater selection for women to choose from based on their varying sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs, and thus would empower women to control their own health. However, there are several challenges that researchers, providers, and policymakers need to address to better protect women’s SRH. It also provided an overview of the microbicide landscape and a discussion for aligning research and development investments.
