Advocates work with community leaders, civil society groups, policymakers, program managers, and other constituencies to ensure that local stakeholders have a voice in the design and conduct of microbicide research and to encourage support for research and development. Advocacy will continue to be important to ensure that plans for introducing microbicides respond to the needs of these stakeholders and particularly to the needs of potential microbicide users. Advocates can work with governments, funders, manufacturers, and others to expedite access to microbicides for those who need them most and to do so in ways that empower, rather than stigmatize, microbicide users. This section provides resources for advocates, including reports, fact sheets, films, and toolkits.
