This hub offers a wide array of tools, publications, and other media to assist researchers working in contraception and prevention of HIV and other STIs in keeping end-users in mind from the beginning and throughout the product development life cycle.
Why a socio-behavioral research hub for the MPT field?
- There are many complexities in developing MPTs that will be safe, effective, affordable, and used by women.
- One key aspect of this process is to study the desirability and acceptability of an MPT candidate during its development so that, when it reaches the market, women will actually use it.
- It is essential for multidisciplinary experts—including those with expertise in HIV, other STIs, contraception, socio-behavioral and market research, drug development, and clinical research—to connect and collaborate to facilitate integration of end-user research throughout different phases of product development.
