Webcast: Women and ARVs for HIV Prevention

Globally‚ women make up more than half of those infected with HIV. Women have been hit hard by the epidemic due to a complex mix of biologic susceptibility‚ social and economic vulnerability‚ and complex behavioral factors. In the past year‚ results from a number of clinical trials have demonstrated that antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) can be potent tools to reduce HIV transmission. However‚ the social and economic factors that drive the global epidemic also present challenges for bringing those tools to the women most in need.

Challenges and opportunities for preventing HIV in women by using ARVs were highlighted at this FHI 360 forum.
