POWER develops cost-effective and scalable models for implementation of ARV-based HIV prevention products for women.
On-site training conducted. All three POWER sites (Kisumu, Kenya; Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa) participated in on-site training for data collection regarding the mental model in-depth interviews (an approach that examines how a person’s beliefs influence decision making) and key informant interviews. In total, 23 members of the research team were trained. Two sites started data collection at the end of April.
PrEP delivery protocol drafted. The POWER team, including USAID representatives, met in February to finalize the PrEP delivery cohort design and implementation plan. Based on the consensus reached at that meeting, the PrEP delivery protocol has been drafted and will be finalized in early May. Regulatory submissions will be initiated at all sites in May or June 2016.
