Attaining UNAIDS' 90-90-90 targets largely depends on the first 90 – correctly diagnosing 90 percent of all people living with HIV. Join AIDSFree for a webinar on October 13, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. EST where presenters will highlight the evidence collected on HIV misdiagnosis and discuss the ethical, legal, human rights, and public health implications.
IPM's 2015 annual report looks at promising new technologies in IPM's pipeline that could put the power of HIV prevention in women's hands. These products include IPM's monthly dapivirine ring – the first microbicide to show efficacy in two Phase III trials – and next-generation products that offer contraception and explore new ARVs.
Contraception has diverse health and non-health benefits, and is one of the best investments for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health. For World Contraception Day, 26 September, WHO has produced a series of 4 videos that explore the development of contraception and explain why it matters.
Did you know that more than 225 million girls and women in developing countries want to avoid pregnancy, but are not using safe and effective family planning methods? Investing in international reproductive health and family planning isn’t just the right choice, it’s the smart choice.
Allowing women to choose whether, when, and how many children to have achieves progress on all of our global development goals. All of this helps break the cycle of poverty, and puts families, communities, and countries on a stronger, more prosperous and sustainable path.

Diagnosis and Disclosure of HIV Status: Implications for Women's Risk of Physical Partner Violence in the Postpartum Period
This study prospectively examined whether HIV leads to elevated risk for intimate partner violence (IPV) for women and how this risk varies depending on HIV status disclosure to a partner.
Over the years studies have produced conflicting evidence about the link between hormonal contraception – especially DMPA, a long-acting progesterone-only injectable – and women's risk of HIV infection.
