Women of color constitute the majority of new HIV new diagnoses among all women in the US and dependent areas in 2018. Nearly a decade after the approval of the first oral biomedical HIV prevention strategy, cisgender womens options for prevention remain limited and participation in prevention research trials face challenges. As a matter of health equity and justice, biomedical HIV prevention research must meaningfully include all women. This critical discussion will address what the field can do to close these continued gaps.
