New USAID Technical Update: Contraception for Women at High Risk of HIV

Anita Dam

Dear IBP Partners,

USAID has published a new technical update, “Contraception for Women at High Risk of HIV,” summarizing the current evidence and WHO revised guidance regarding the use of contraception by women at high risk of acquiring HIV, specifically that this population group can use all methods of contraception without restriction. This brief replaces previous technical updates posted by USAID on this topic.

Programmatic implications and the USG response are also highlighted in the update, emphasizing priorities to continue dissemination of revised guidelines, improving method choice, and strengthening HIV prevention, including FP/HIV integration in settings with high HIV prevalence. 

This brief was produced by PEPFAR's implementing agencies, USAID and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the USAID Office of Population and Reproductive Health. This brief replaces previous technical updates posted by USAID on this topic.  

Other key resources on this topic include:
Best wishes in the new year!
