When the Evidence Is Not Enough: Hormonal Contraception and HIV

May 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Uncertainty remains around hormonal contraception and its link to HIV acquisition. Given WHO’s recommendation that women should receive correct and full information to enable an informed choice regarding their method of contraception, the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) developed the Strategic Communication Framework for Hormonal Contraceptive Methods and Potential HIV-Related Risks. This strategic framework was designed to assist governments in developing a communication strategy and to guide the development of social and behavior change communication (SBCC) materials and activities focused on hormonal contraception and HIV. To date, Malawi’s and Swaziland’s Ministries of Health have adapted the framework to their country contexts and have subsequently developed SBCC materials on this topic.

This webinar will present the framework, discuss the adaptation process in Malawi and Swaziland and provide the perspective of women living with HIV related to this issue.
