CROI 2012: Salim S. Abdool Karim - CAPRISA Trial



Salim S. Abdool Karim, PhD, Director, CAPRISA Trial, Doris Duke Medical Research Institute, Nelson R. Mandela School of Medicine, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Congella, South Africa. He refreshes our memory of the recent success over the past 18 months of CAPRISA study on microbicide gel, and the somewhat unsuccessful trial using tablets, and another trial which provides more success where the compounds are actually taken by the trial participants.

Dr. Abdool Karim covers the behavioral aspects of the trial, mission focused research investment, community role model leadership, and future demonstration projects.
