What are MPTs?

Multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs)  are an innovative class of products that deliver varied combinations of HIV prevention, other STI prevention, and contraception that will improve the lives of women and families worldwide.
 
There are currently nearly a dozen MPTs in clinical trials, with many other innovative technologies in earlier stages of development, including:
  • Longer acting vaginal rings
  • Fast dissolving films and inserts
  • Innovative and effective gels
Effective, affordable, and widely available MPTs would save lives and improve the health of women and their families across the globe.
