In collaboration with Wits RHI and FHI360, our CAMI Health program -- which houses the IMPT Secretariat -- is proud to launch our newest resource, “Word on the Street: African Women Share Their Reproductive Health Stories.” This interactive, web-based tool is built on ESRI’s ArcGIS StoryMap platform and captures the authentic narratives of adolescent girls and young women, key influencers (male partners, grandmothers/mothers), and technical experts in “hot spot” areas of South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe regarding prevalent issues of HIV, other STIs, and unintended pregnancy.

By amplifying the diverse voices, needs and lived experiences of these stakeholders, “Word on the Street '' serves as an advocacy tool for fostering enabling environments for female-initiated HIV prevention and family planning options, including MPTs as potential game-changers in addressing these issues.
