Meet a Fresh Crop of 8 Friendly Rectal Microbicide Advocates From 5 Countries

Rectal microbicide advocates come in all flavors, shapes, and sizes - and from every corner of the globe. And we have 8 new bios to share with you.

Check out Meet IRMA Advocates on the IRMA website and learn about advocates like Gerard from Rwanda, Gabriela and Gerald from Peru, Andrew and Zoe from South Africa, Mariama from the UK, and Jim and Rita from the United States. They may all have very different background, but share the desire to put safe, effective, acceptable and accessible rectal microbicides into the hands of the men, women, and transgender individuals who need them.

"Rectal microbicides are something I remember when it was only in the 'what if we could stages. Now, I am astounded on how far [the field] has come,” says Rita Labbett.
