Research and Development of New Biomedical HIV Prevention Tools for Women and Girls: Combating the Global AIDS Epidemic Through a More Empowered Response in Sub-Saharan Africa

High HIV prevalence and incidence puts a disproportionate burden on girls and women in Sub-Saharan Africa and threatens to reverse current success in combating the global AIDS epidemic. Programs to fight HIV/AIDS among women and girls can be bolstered by new biomedical prevention tools including pre-exposure prophylaxis, microbicides and vaccines that enhance women and girls’ ability to protect themselves. Better aligning research and development efforts with the needs of women and girls can accelerate the introduction of a wider, more effective array of HIV prevention tools to enhance the health of girls and women, as well as the global response to HIV/AIDS.
