"The Rectal Revolution Is Here: An Introduction to Rectal Microbicide Clinical Trials" is a dynamic video developed by International Rectal Microbicide Advocates, the Population Council, and the Microbicide Trials Network. With a unique, upbeat mix of animation and live action, it's designed to educate communities affected by HIV about rectal microbicide development and the importance of participating in clinical trials to support the search for new HIV prevention options. A former rectal microbicide trial participant plays a starring role, and interviews include the voices of scientists, advocates and community members from Thailand, South Africa, Peru and the United States. The video is available in English as well as Spanish and Thai.
Produced by Paw Print Productions in Cape Town, South Africa in collaboration with International Rectal Microbicide Advocates, the Population Council, and the Microbicide Trials Network.
