From sexually transmitted infections to outbreaks of Ebola, Zika and other viruses, communicable diseases are a major threat to the public’s health. We apply our expertise in research, leadership development, evaluation, capacity building and technological innovation to combat the spread of communicable disease in the U.S. and around the world.
Building Health Equity
Young women in sub-Saharan Africa are disproportionately impacted by HIV and other sexually transmitted infections as well as high rates of unintended pregnancy, and are among the most underserved populations for sexual and reproductive health in the world. In 2022, PHI's CAMI Health and partners spoke to young women and key influencers in their communities (male partners, grandmothers and technical experts) about their sexual and reproductive health experiences. Their first-hand stories provide glimpses into the diversity of their needs and desires and offer insights into solutions for improving their lives. Serving as an advocacy tool for female-initiated HIV prevention and family planning options, the StoryMap tool aims to foster the adoption of Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) as potential game-changers in addressing these issues.
