More Powerful Prevention

Barrier methods such as the condom are a form of MPTs— they protect against pregnancy and many STIs, including HIV. But the reality is that condom use is inconsistent and a great number of women cannot insist on their use. Meanwhile, contraception methods like the Pill and injectables offer no protection against HIV and STIs. MPTs address these shortcomings and build on years of contraceptive and HIV research to develop more comprehensive and effective prevention methods.
