Earlier today at the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012), IRMA co-hosted a well-attended satellite session on rectal microbicides with their partners Microbicide Trials Network (MTN) and AVAC.

Ian McGowan from the MTN and Jim Pickett from IRMA presented on the science and advocacy (respectively) and were then joined by panelists from the United States, Kenya, and South Africa (Damon Humes, Rig Rush, Mitchell Warren, Carol Odada and Brian Kanyemba) for a conversation with the attendees.

Ronald Johnson of AIDS United moderated.

Below you will find Ian and Jim’s slides.
