Addressing Multiple and Concurrent Sexual Partnerships in Generalized HIV Epidemics

United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Technical Working Group (TWG) for General Population and Youth Prevention, in collaboration with AIDSTAR-One, convened a technical consultation in Washington, DC, October 29–30, 2008, entitled "Multiple and Concurrent Sexual Partnerships in Generalized HIV Epidemics." The objectives of this meeting were to (1) deepen understanding of the role of multiple and concurrent partnerships (MCP) in the spread of HIV and (2) share emerging programmatic approaches and build consensus on promising strategies to address MCP. The report is an outcome of this meeting and surveys what is known about MCP, what still needs to be learned, and what can be done now to advance efforts to address MCP.
