CONCLUSIONS: The response to a signal suggesting a possible safety risk for a drug used in pregnancy or among women who may become pregnant needs to be rapid and comprehensive. It requires the existence of appropriately designed surveillance systems with broad population coverage; data analyses that examine risk-benefit trade-offs in a variety of contexts; guidance to transform this risk-benefit balance into effective and agreed-upon policy; involvement of the affected community and other key stakeholders; and a communication plan for all levels of knowledge and complexity. Implementation of this proposed framework for res...

These are critical to preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV. PMID: 31290377 [PubMed - in process]

June 27, 2019In the Oshikoto region of Namibia, the number of adolescent girls and young women taking pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) increased by over 100% in just three months—an uptick from 82 to 172. That means over twice as many at-risk girls and women are now lowering their risk of infection by using this daily medication.This is one of the early, promising results ofIntraHealth International and IntraHealth Namibia’s work on the USAID-funded Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-Free, Mentored,&Safe (DREAMS) project, which is led by Project HOPE in Namibia.DREAMS is helping Namibia prevent new HI...
