summary thumbnail

This webinar reviewed the latest advances, opportunities and disappointments in HIV prevention and provided an opportunity to address key questions including: where we are with the introduction of injectable cabotegravir and the Dapivirine Vaginal Ring; the development status (including setbacks) of promising new PrEP agents; and how to ensure HIV prevention and equitable access to innovation do not fall further behind; and much more.

This webinar featured the perspectives of Linda-Gail Bekker from South Africa’s Desmond Tutu Health Foundation (and AVAC’s board); Grace Kumwenda of Pakachere Institute of Health and Development Communication in Malawi and Kenneth Mwehonge, the new executive director of Coalition for Health Promotion and Social Development (HEPS-Uganda) — both former AVAC Fellows — and Rachel Baggaley from the World Health Organization.
