IPM receives 2 awards from USAID to advance HIV prevention technologies for women
Date:10/22/2013

SILVER SPRING, Md. (October 21, 2013) The International Partnership for Microbicides (IPM) announced today that it has received two competitive five-year awards with a combined US$40 million ceiling from the US Agency for International Development (USAID). Both awards aim to advance new HIV prevention tools for women and to help ensure their availability in developing countries where the epidemic has hit hardest.

HIV infection is the leading cause of death among women of reproductive age worldwide. USAID's funding will support IPM's dapivirine vaginal ring designed to prevent HIV, now in late-stage clinical trials, and spur development of other promising products that will expand women's options with tools they can use to protect themselves against the virus.

"We commend USAID's continued leadership in improving the lives of the world's most vulnerable women," said Dr. Zeda Rosenberg, Chief Executive Officer of IPM. "USAID has been at the helm of efforts to protect women from HIV. This new funding will reduce the time it takes for novel, lifesaving products to go from development to the hands of women in developing countries."

IPM's dapivirine vaginal ring the first product of its kind could provide women with a discreet and easy-to-use tool to protect themselves against HIV infection. The ring slowly releases the antiretroviral (ARV) drug dapivirine over the course of one month. Because women would only need to replace the ring monthly, it may encourage consistent use, which would increase its effectiveness.

The ring is currently being studied in two Phase III clinical trials: IPM's Ring Study and the ASPIRE study being conducted by our partner, the Microbicide Trials Network. The Ring Study and ASPIRE are being conducted in Africa where the epidemic's toll is greatest. These sister studies, along with smaller safety studies, are designed to together provide the strength of evidence needed to secure regulatory approva
