The Female Condom as HIV Prevention
The Female Condom
While the female condom has been available for 30 years, research questions remain in regards to design, rollout and implementation. R&D work— including product development efforts, basic HIV research, clinical trial preparation, community education and advocacy—continues. In 2012, global investment in R&D related to the female condom totaled US$2 million, coming from the Hewlett Foundation and the Female Condom Company.
