New Data, New Questions: An Update on Hormonal Contraception and HIV

AVAC, in collaboration with ICW East Africa, hosted a webinar on the most recent data regarding hormonal contraception and HIV. The call, moderated by ICW-EA, featured a number of resource people to address the following:

  • A summary of the recently released systematic review on hormonal contraception and HIV.
  • Updates from the World Health Organization on actions planned and underway related to this important question.
  • Reflections from investigators involved in the ongoing ECHO trial that is studying three different contraceptive methods and their impact on the risk of acquiring HIV.
  • The civil society view from the HC-HIV Advocacy Working Group—an issue-focused platform of African women advocates and their allies, convened by AVAC and ICW-EA.
