HIV Positive Women and Microbicides, Advocates Brief, Global Campaign for Microbicides (2006)

A fact sheet from the Global Campaign for Microbicides discussing the need for effective microbicides (topically applied products that prevent HIV and other STIs) for women. The sheet also provides information about the status of research regarding microbicides, current funding challenges to the development of effective microbicides, and some of the reasons development of microbicides is necessary (in particular, men's unwillingness to negotiate condom use with women). This resource will be useful to advocates in the HIV prevention field and medical personnel working with women at risk for or living with HIV.
