• Research/Demonstration Projects: No research on daily oral PrEP has taken place in Malawi. There is an ongoing trial of an ARV-containing vaginal ring, slated to release data in the next year.
  • Drug Registration: Truvada is registered for treatment and prevention
  • Policy/Regulatory: The “Malawi Guidelines for Clinical Management of HIV in Children and Adults (2016) do not currently recommend PrEP use. The National HIV Prevention Strategy (2015-2020) recommends PrEP is included in the prevention strategy package for men who have sex with men (MSM) and discordant couples.
  • Advocacy: Civil society is at the forefront of efforts to ensure a comprehensive response, including high quality ART for people living with HIV and incorporation of PrEP. See, for example, the poster Advocacy for More HIV Prevention Options for Women in Malawi.
