Microbicide Research and Development to Advance HIV Prevention Technologies through Responsive Innovation and Excellence: Project MATRIX
The mission of MATRIX, a program funded by USAID, is to develop an innovative range of acceptable, affordable, scalable, and ultimately deliverable products designed to address the unmet needs of women at risk of HIV.
CONRAD has joined eighteen partner organizations in the United States and Sub-Saharan Africa who are experts in product development, clinical trials, social and behavioral research, and market and business case development to develop multiple products:
- Cabotegravir Injectable Hydrogel Depot (+ levonorgestrel)
- Cabotegravir Pellet Implants (+ levonorgestrel)
- TAF/ EVG On-Demand Dual Compartment (Vaginal/Rectal) Fast Dissolving Insert
