MPTs: Articles
from the Field

Issue #8 - 15 December 2014


To our IMPT/CAMI Health Colleagues,


December 1st marked World AIDS Day, and provided an opportunity to feature the expanding field of Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) as a promising development in HIV prevention. We were thrilled to see MPTs featured on several mainstream media outlets and to have the opportunity to address the broad spectrum of women's sexual and reproductive health needs. Provided below are links to recent publications, media articles, and other resources relevant to MPTs to keep you up-to-date. Please note that contents are neither endorsed by nor represent the views of CAMI Health or the Initiative for Multipurpose Prevention Technologies, and that due to publication copyright and permissions restrictions, full-text versions of resources may not be publicly available.

If you have a resource to include in our next issue, please send to Beverley Newman at [email protected]. Previous issues are available on the CAMI Health website.
