CONRAD has been awarded $28.5 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for HIV prevention research. The Washington Business Journal said CONRAD would use the money “to develop HIV-preventing microbicides, substances used intravaginally by women to help prevent sexually transmitted diseases.” Henry Gabelnick, executive director of CONRAD, told Washington Business Journal that, “Despite setbacks in the HIV prevention field over the past year, the global effort to develop new prevention tools, including microbicides, must go on. We are grateful for the continued support of the Gates Foundation.”
