In this episode hear about recently published findings from a study out of Rakai, Uganda confirm that scaling up a combination of existing interventions, such as voluntary medical male circumcision and antiretroviral therapy provides protection from HIV at the population-level. How do we apply these findings at the global level? How should advocates prepare for results—anticipated in 2019—of the ECHO trial that’s looking at the effect of hormonal contraceptives on HIV risk? And what needs to happen in 2018 to reach long-term global targets for ending the epidemic?   Building on our advocacy agenda laid out in the December episode of Px Pulse this episode expands on the challenges and possibilities for 2018!
