For more than 30 years, the global HIV epidemic has affected families, communities and countries alike. Women of all ages account for nearly half of the 36 million people living with HIV (PLHIV) worldwide. In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 60 percent of all PLHIV are women, and this population continues to rise rapidly. Young women in southern Africa between ages 14 to 24 are at highest risk of and most vulnerable to HIV infection. Prevention of HIV infection among women is an urgent global priority and the HPTN is leading a vibrant research agenda evaluating ways to protect women worldwide from the disease. Presentations will focus on studies conducted in HIV infected and uninfected women to evaluate interventions that may prevent HIV infection.
