The potential relationships between the use of hormonal contraception and HIV will be discussed during several sessions of the 21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) in Durban, South Africa, later this month. The conference programme includes three sessions, an oral presentation and two posters on the topic. The sessions will examine communication and action in the context of uncertainty about hormonal contraceptive use and HIV risk, research on hormonal contraception and HIV, and supporting those affected by HIV to meet their reproductive goals.
