ARV-Based HIV Prevention Technologies: Developing the Capacity and Tools to Deliver New Prevention Products

Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this project examines the delivery and implementation of the use of antiretroviral drugs as a pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in comprehensive HIV prevention programs. The O’Neill Institute is part of a larger global effort with several partners, which include Imperial College London, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, WHO, UNAIDS, Results for Development, and AVAC.

The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University was established in 2007 through the generous philanthropy of Linda and Timothy O’Neill to respond to the need for innovative solutions to the most pressing national and international health concerns. Housed at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington D.C., the O’Neill Institute reflects the importance of public and private law in health policy analysis. The O’Neill Institute draws upon the University's considerable intellectual resources, including the School of Nursing & Health Studies, School of Medicine, the Public Policy Institute, and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics.
