Marketed Vaginal Products as Microbicides: A Strategy in India

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.)

Western Kenya Cervical Cancer Prevention Project (WKCCPP) Final Report December 2004

The WKCCPP Project, implemented from 2000 to 2004, was a collaborative effort to develop and evalulate a model cervical cancer prevention program suitable for rural, low-resource settings in Africa. During the life of the project nearly 2,400 women were screened using visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), visual screening using Lugol's iodine (VILI), and a combination of both screening tests, followed by cryotherapy. WKCCPP clearly demonstrated that cervical cancer prevention services based on these tests can be established and sustained in rural Kenya with relatively modest start-up requirements and support. With commitment at national and local levels, an affordable and effective cervical cancer prevention service could be phased in over the next five to ten years, and thousands of women's lives could be spared.
