In Los Angeles County, the rates of women who are testing positive for HIV is increasing; over 80% are exposed during heterosexual contact (Department of HIV and STD Programs). The increase reliance upon biomedical interventions has highlighted the need for women to have access to a range to tools that prevention transmission or acquisition of HIV. The Los Angeles Women’s Collaborative, including partners representing organizations such as HIV Drug & Alcohol Task Force, APLA Health, The University of California Los Angeles Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), One Woman Can, and UCLA Los Angeles Family AIDS Network (LAFAN), have formed a sub-committee aimed at increasing education and efficacy around prevention strategies. As women, we acknowledge that the consistent prioritization of male-centric technologies including condoms etc. has de-emphasized our health within the current landscape.
