Civil Society Partners

Overall global acceptance and call for microbicides is owed in large part to the efforts of formal civil society partnerships that work with us and other like-minded organizations to raise awareness about the need for new HIV prevention technologies, particularly for women in the world’s hardest hit regions. 

IPM’s civil society partnerships work tirelessly with donors, policymakers, academic institutions, product development partnerships, other civil society organizations and nonprofit entities to create positive and receptive environments for microbicide development where they are needed most.

Value of civil society partnerships

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. – African proverb

IPM partners with numerous civil society and advocacy organizations based in Africa, Europe and North America.

Our partners organize activities at the national level for key stakeholder groups to enhance and improve public support for needed HIV prevention technologies like microbicides.

IPM also works with our partners to strengthen technical knowledge around the complexities of HIV biomedical research.

Partnerships in sub-Saharan Africa. IPM’s advocacy work extends throughout sub-Saharan Africa, with new partnerships emerging regularly.

These agreements are paving the way for ongoing advocacy collaboration in the countries where IPM’s clinical research efforts are concentrated and where microbicides for women are most urgently needed.
