Sociobehavioral research & community planning to develop site-specific pilot intervention plans for PrEP rollout

The objectives of this social marketing study were to conduct formative research to inform the development of a pilot intervention for the social marketing of PrEP to specific target populations, to facilitate a process of community planning for a local pilot intervention, and to develop a social marketing plan based on the qualitative research results and community planning process.
Unfortunately, funding for the study at the Pretoria site was eliminated in August 2010 due to budget cuts. Therefore, it was not possible to complete the study and create the plan of site-specific recommendations based on study findings. However, the site research team had already completed part of the data collection, and those results are presented here. We believe that public health stakeholders may find these results useful in their discussions about the potential rollout of a PrEP pill in South Africa.

New technologies for women`s HIV prevention – The payoff for sustainable development

The world is in the midst of an exciting conversation about human development: What kind of future do we want for our planet, and what would it take to achieve this vision? As endorsed by the United Nations (UN), the bold new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a shared statement of what must happen to advance human development by 2030. Gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls will be critical to achieving the aspirations set forth in the SDGs. This sentiment is reflected in UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s call to action: “Let the 21st century be the century of women. … The empowerment and rights of girls and women must be at the heart of everything we do.” That imperative begins with ensuring the health and well-being of women and girls, which must be prioritized in any effort to encourage sustainable growth.
