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 increased reliance upon biomedical interventions has confirmed the need for women to have access to a range to tools that prevent the transmission or acquisition of HIV. The Los Angeles Women’s Collaborative, which  includes like-minded partners representing organizations such as the 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.
