Commitment by

International Partnership for Microbicides

The International Partnership for Microbicides conducted the second annual Microbicide Access Forum (MAF) in partnership with WHO and the Population Council. IPM then developed a mathematical model for microbicide introduction strategies in partnership with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and initiated a product acceptability study for three microbicide formulations in partnership with U.S. and Africa-based researchers. A 'Review on Access to Medicines in the Developing World: Lessons Learned from the Pharmaceutical Industry,' was conducted, along with an investigation of vaginal practices of African women and their implications for microbicide use, in partnership with the University of Bern.
