Uncertainty remains around hormonal contraception and its link to HIV acquisition. Countries continue to grapple with how they can or should convey this uncertainty to their communities. As a part of this international discussion, the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) hosted a webinar focusing on the Strategic Communication Framework for Hormonal Contraceptive Methods and Potential HIV-Related Risks. The webinar introduced the framework, provided discussion around the adaptation process in Malawi and Swaziland, and included the perspective of women living with HIV related to this important issue.
The webinar consisted of five speakers and was moderated by Nithya Mani, Division Chief, Implementation Support, Office of HIV/AIDS, United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
