Holiday Greetings from CAMI!

Your generosity has strengthened CAMI’s work to save lives and empower women and girls. With 86 million unintended pregnancies around the world every year and 2.5 million new HIV cases, women need a user-friendly product that provides more comprehensive protection. Even for women using family planning, most birth control methods offer no protection against HIV and STIs, and condoms are under used.

Your support has furthered our efforts to initiate, educate, and advocate for the accelerated development of Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) and other strategies for improved sexual and reproductive health.

Since August 2013, your donations have greatly enhanced our strategic outreach efforts helping to further the field of MPTs. A few examples of what we have been able to accomplish are below.

  • CAMI was also featured in a blog post on the need for MPTs, written by Bethany Young Holt and featured in the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Impatient Optimists.  

CAMI and IMPT partners attended and presented at conferences in September, October, November and December including:

  • Attending and presenting at the September conference Reproductive Health 2013, hosted by IMPT partner organization the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP).
  • On behalf of the IMPT, Dr. Alan Stone attended “New HIV Prevention Strategies: Future of Microbicides” on the 16th of October in Brussels. Dr. Stone presented a poster entitled: One Product. Simultaneous Protection. Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) for Sexual and Reproductive Health. A video interview was conducted with Dr. Stone. You may access the video here.
  • Also in November, IMPT partners traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for the International Conference on Family Planning where there were two MPT-dedicated sessions, an MPT roundtable as well as a CAMI/IMPT-hosted booth.

To learn more about CAMI and our work to advance MPTs, please visit www.cami-health.org and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

On behalf of CAMI and the IMPT, we thank you for your steadfast commitment to women and girls. We are excited about the promising work ahead of us to make simultaneous prevention a reality; and we hope you will join us by supporting our efforts!
