- Rectal Delivery of Magnesium Sulfate: Simplifying Anticonvulsant Therapy for Severe Preeclampsia/Eclampsia
Magnesium sulfate is the most effective, low-cost treatment for preeclampsia/eclampsia, the second leading cause of maternal death in developing countries; yet it is widely underutilized. In this poster, created for the 2013 Saving Lives at Birth DevelopmentXChange, PATH proposed to develop a rectally delivered mucoadhesive gel containing magnesium sulfate. This will increase overall access to and the use of a critical anticonvulsant therapy for women with severe, life-threatening preeclampsia/eclampsia.

- Research Rashomon: Lessons from the Cameroon Pre-exposure Prophylaxis Trial Site
From August 2004 to February 2005, the HIV prevention world was rocked by the suspension and cancellation of PrEP effectiveness trials in Cambodia and Cameroon. Acknowledging that no single version of the events constitutes the “real story,” the case studies in this document are built from extensive interviews with many stakeholders to reconstruct accounts of what eventually led to government intervention that halted the research. The case studies capture the political context and backdrop, the underlying and unaddressed conflicts that led to the costly collapse of two trials, and the lessons they provide for current and future research.
