WHO Guidance Statement: Women at high risk of HIV and women living with HIV can safely use hormonal contraception
The World Health Organization (WHO) released a statement in October 2015 upholding guidance that women at high risk of HIV or living with HIV can safely use hormonal contraceptives, including injectables, to prevent pregnancy. However, WHO is instructing health care providers to strongly advise such women who decide to use progestin-only injectables to also always use male or female condoms for protection against HIV.
