Results 4 Informed Choice is a resource for HIV and family planning program implementers, government representatives, advocates and journalists as they respond to the results from the Evidence for Contraceptive Options and HIV Outcomes (ECHO) trial.
The trial results, released June 13, 2019, showed that none of the three contraceptive methods in the trial increased the risk of HIV acquisition. Other findings, including high HIV incidence across the study arms and broad acceptability and effectiveness of the contraceptive methods, are a call to action for greater attention to and investment in women’s health, HIV prevention and contraceptive choice. Full findings from the study can be found in the Lancet article.
The tools, resources and data are intended to help stakeholders plan and execute their response so that women have all the information they need to make an informed choice in adopting and using a contraceptive method and protecting themselves from HIV.
