Since 2003, PATH has conducted a wide range of activities to inform and advance the development of novel microbicide-delivery methods that are safe, acceptable, affordable, and appropriate for use in low-resource settings. This fact sheet describes how PATH identified a paper, user-filled applicator as an important, practical option that could help reduce cost per dose, thereby improving access to microbicide products in impoverished regions most affected by HIV.
