A cornerstone of IRMA’s Project ARM (Africa for Rectal Microbicides) initiative, the strategy document developed by African advocates, researchers, and global allies outlines priority actions to ensure Africa fully engages in rectal microbicide research and advocacy activities, including the integration of safe anal-sex messaging into HIV prevention programs and Global Lube Access Mobilisation (GLAM.)
And Lube - Global Lube Access Mobilisation
"On The Map" is to make safe, affordable, condom-compatible lubricant available to all Africans who engage in anal intercourse, including gay men and other men who have sex with men, transgender individuals, and heterosexual men and women.
With this recommendation, IRMA and amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research’s MSM Initiative and AVAC launched the Global Lube Access Mobilisation (GLAM).
