Register for upcoming webinar on MPTs

November 6, 2014

Dear Advocate,

Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) are a fast-growing area in women’s sexual and reproductive health. We hope you’ll join us and our partners at CAMI Health for a webinar on Wednesday, November 12 at 11 AM US Eastern time:  MPT Acceptability in Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa. 

Register here.
This webinar will summarize methods and key findings from the market research study conducted by Ipsos Healthcare, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to assess the acceptability of multipurpose options among women in Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa.

Join the webinar to hear:
  • What women in Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa shared about sexual behavior, contraceptives and HIV prevention needs—and how this information will be used to shape the MPT agenda.
  • What the research found about the acceptability of four potential MPTs (injectables, implants, intra-vaginal film, intra-vaginal ring). 
Jeff Lucas and Moushira El-Sahn from Ipsos Healthcare will be summarizing methods and key findings from the market research data, and Bethany Young-Holt from CAMI Health will moderate the discussion.
This call is one of the latest updates in the MPT field. Here are some other resources of note: We hope you’ll join us for this important call, and please do email questions and issues in advance.
