The Choice Agenda: 1000 Members Setting the Agenda

December 12, 2022

The Choice Agenda (TCA), a global forum for advocacy on HIV prevention, is just a few new sign ups away from the 1,000 member mark!!! It’s a milestone reminding us of what the TCA has achieved in such a short time, with agenda-setting conversations and deep-dive webinars on key issues in the field and a full program to come in 2023.

Since its launch earlier this year, The Choice Agenda has hosted monthly webinars and moderated passionate, highly-informed discussions with advocates and experts across the field. The Choice Agenda program, and all of its participants, representing over 40 countries, takes on a wide range of topics. Together, the TCA community drills into critical choices, including the need for short acting, non-systemic, user-controlled options, and a wide range of tailored implementation strategies that must define advocacy, the HIV response, and global health equity at large. Participants are also provided with links to a curation of exceptional resources to support further education and advocacy.

All these conversations and resources are here for you to follow, in the TCA archive of listserv discussions and webinar recordings, including:

● “PEP Needs Some Pep! Addressing PEP Neglect in HIV Prevention Research, Programming and Uptake” (Recording/Resources)

● “Doxycycline for STI prevention: Evidence and Current Research” (Recording/Resources)

● “RINGing the Bell for Choice: Actions and Solutions on Dapivirine Ring Access” (Recording/Resources)

● “Faster, Smarter and More Equitable – Accelerating Roll Out and Uptake of CAB for PrEP” (Recording/Resources)

● “The Research Says Yes, YES, YES – Just Like That”(Recording/Resources)

● “Efficacy is Not the Only HIV Prevention Attribute that Matters – Lessons from Contraception” (Recording/Resources)

Join the listserv to access the archive and participate in the discovery and debate of ongoing and emerging topics. And don’t miss the final TCA program of the year: More than Vessels: Pregnant people deserve inclusion in HIV prevention clinical and implementation research on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 at 9:00am-10:30am ET; 1:00pm-2:30pm GMT.
