  • Update on Hormonal Contraceptives and Risk of HIV Transmission: Current WHO Recommendations | CCIH supports family planning by faith-based organizations, although CCIH does not take any position on which family planning methods or choices of contraceptives are acceptable, leaving that choice to each of our members or faith communities, or to individual couples. A recent WHO technical report provided the latest consensus of experts on hormonal contraceptives and HIV risk. The expert committee continues to affirm that hormonal contraceptives, including injectables such as Depo-Provera, may be provided with no restrictions--Medical Eligibility Criteria (MEC), Category 1. However, there is a stronger recommendation to always use condoms if at high risk of HIV infection.
