PrEP Briefing Paper. Pebody R. (2015)


Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is an HIV prevention strategy that uses antiretroviral drugs to protect HIV-negative people from HIV infection. People take antiretrovirals (ARVs) when they are at risk of exposure to HIV, in order to lower their risk of infection. Research suggests that PrEP is highly efficacious in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, as long as the drugs are taken regularly, as directed. However, PrEP does not prevent other sexually transmitted infections or pregnancy.

Global Strategy for Women and Children Health. United Nations. (2015)


Every year around 8 million children die of preventable causes, and more than 350,000 women die from preventable complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. If we bridge the gaps detailed in this document, the gains will be enormous. Reaching the targets for MDG 4 (a two-thirds reduction in under-five mortality) and MDG 5 (a three-quarters reduction in maternal mortality and universal access to reproductive health) would mean saving the lives of 4 million children and about 190,000 women in 2015 alone.

Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed - Progress Report 2015. UNICEF. (2015)


Over the past 25 years, the number of children who die before reaching their fifth birthday has fallen by more than half. While the world has not achieved the target of a two-thirds reduction in under-five mortality set out in Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 4, falling mortality has saved the lives of 48 million children under the age of 5 since 2000 — an enormous accomplishment.

The progress that has been made — especially the acceleration achieved in recent years — shows that tremendous advances are possible, even in places with scarce resources and with substantial burdens of child mortality. Wealth does not have to determine destiny; past performance does not have to overshadow future potential; the child mortality curve can be bent. The results communicate a clear message: We can choose a better future for the world’s children.
