The Guttmacher Institute’s international work on HIV and other STIs focuses on developing regions. Our research and advocacy efforts have focused on the linkages between HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights, the impact of STIs on maternal and newborn health, the need for new technologies (including multipurpose prevention technologies) and U.S. support for global AIDS programs.

This inadequate funding may significantly hamper the timely development of MPTs that could be a huge boost to achieving U.S. global health priorities
