Over more than a decade, the Global Campaign for Microbicides produced a wide variety of materials to support the development of women-initiated tools for prevention of HIV infections. Several are available in PATH’s publications catalog; highlighted resources are below.
In Women's Hands video on YouTube
First launched on World AIDS Day in 2004, this 11-minute film captures what it means to be women in a world of AIDS—a world where many women have little say about relationships. About sex. About condoms. And few ways to protect themselves against HIV. The film introduces its audience to a handful of scientists and advocates who are racing to curb the loss of future generations from this epidemic through the development of microbicides.
Mapping the Standards of Care at Microbicide Clinical Trial Sites
Global Campaign for Microbicides, 2008
In 2006, the Global Campaign for Microbicides began to map the standards of care and prevention provided to participants in late-stage microbicide trials. The resulting report provides an independent assessment of the health care and prevention services provided to women in the trials. It explores the factors that inform care-related decisions at trial sites, and it offers recommendations to strengthen the HIV prevention research field’s ability to respond to care-related challenges in the future.
