The Case for MPTs Infographic

Women need different kinds of sexual and reproductive health prevention at different times in their lives. Some want to get pregnant but prevent STIs, while others hope to prevent pregnancy at the same time they avoid STIs and HIV.

Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) are a new class of products that allow women to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, at the same time. Currently the condom is the only available MPT, but methods—many of which are female initiated—are in the product development pipeline.

Explore what innovative new technologies are available and in development by browsing the MPT product database compiled by the Initiative for MPTs, hosted by PHI's CAMI Health.
