Contraceptive Research and Development: Looking to the Future

Institute of Medicine Report (1996)
1996

Edited by Polly Harrison and Allan Rosenfield

This book explores the frontiers of science where the contraceptives of the future are likely to be found and lays out criteria for deciding where to make the next R&D investments. The book comprehensively examines today's contraceptive needs, identifies niches in those needs that seem most readily translatable into market terms, and scrutinizes issues that shape the market: method side effects and contraceptive failure, the challenge of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, and the implications of the "women's agenda".
