Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs):

Multipurpose prevention technologies, or MPTs, are products designed to simultaneously prevent HIV, other STIs, and/or unintended pregnancy. Although condoms are the only MPT currently available, our global learning network is advancing the MPT field to realize a suite of products that will address women’s diverse needs and preferences.

With MPTs we aim to:

  • Reduce unintended pregnancy
  • Reduce STIs including HIV
  • Reduce costs associated with infections and treatment
  • Reduce maternal mortality
  • Increase educational attainment
  • Improve the health of women and families
