The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support the continued development of new and innovative on-demand, event-driven, and long-acting (systemic and non-systemic) multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs).
It supports development of MPTs that prevent HIV infection
and pregnancy (hormonal and non-hormonal methods); sexually transmitted infections (STI) and pregnancy; or multiple non-HIV STI or HIV/STI MPTs in cis and trans males and females of all ages.
Applications for MPT development may involve pharmacokinetic (PK), pharmacodynamic (PD), safety and, drug-drug interactions (DDI) studies using drug development, and formulation science supported by animal model testing.
Also supported are biobehavioral and behavioral/social studies to identify MPT user-desired rheological and biophysical factors (look, feel, effectiveness, safety, and duration of action) and other behavioral/social factors that could promote increased MPT adoption and use.
