IPM Receives Worldwide Rights to HIV Prevention Medicine

ucts but also make sure research into new tools continues. It serves as a valuable model for how creative partnerships can help tackle some of the most daunting global health challenges."

HIV/AIDS is among the greatest obstacles to women's health and development. Although the last decade has witnessed remarkable achievements against the epidemic — with new infections down by one-third since 2001 — this progress has largely left women behind. In some parts of sub-Saharan Africa, women ages 15 to 24 are three to four times more likely to be infected with HIV as men in the same age group. Women-initiated tools, including microbicides and MPTs in the form of vaginal rings, films and gels, are being developed because the best weapon against HIV is a range of unique options that give women protection that meets their needs.

Since 2004, five major pharmaceutical companies — Bristol-Myers Squibb, Gilead, Merck & Co., ViiV Healthcare and Janssen — have entered into royalty-free licenses with IPM to develop, manufacture and distribute eight ARV products as microbicides in developing countries. These licenses ensure that any new product will be provided at low cost in the settings where these new tools are most urgently needed.

IPM's work is made possible through the generous support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, Irish Aid, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID), the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the M.A.C. AIDS Fund and the OPEC Fund for International Development.
