This poster was presented by PATH's India Microbicide Project at the Microbicides 2004 Conference in London. It describes PATH's innovative approach to microbicide development, including (1) starting with products already marketed in India to determine whether any could be used to prevent HIV and/or common microbial infections, and (2) introducing a microbicide using an "escalating claim" strategy. (This project was active from February 2002 to June 2006.)
