Meet Javier, A Friendly Rectal Microbicide Advocate

Javier Arellano
Mexico City, Mexico

Born in Mexico City, Mexico, Javier Arellano has taken a “full force” approach in the mission of advocating for rectal microbicides. Serving as the Deputy Director of Clinical Prevention of the Mexico City AIDS program, Javier was introduced to IRMA while attending the 2008 International AIDS Conference in Mexico City.

“I am absolutely sure about the microbicides as new technologies to prevent STDs, including HIV. I think microbicides are a complementary tool against fighting HIV,” he says.

Since getting involved with IRMA Javier has continued his research on the sexual health of MSM, advocated for rectal microbicides in his presentations and training sessions, and he also contributed to Life Lube’s “How are you healthy?” project, which has been one of the most popular posts on this gay men's health blog.
