Global Campaign for Microbicides (GCM) is a non-profit organization which promotes the development and use of microbicides to improve health. The campaign is housed at PATH in Seattle.

History[edit]

The Global Campaign for Microbicides was founded in 1998 at the XII International AIDS Conference.[1][2]

Projects[edit]

When the microbicide nonoxynol-9 was found to be associated with increased risk of contracting HIV, the GCM led an effort to raise awareness that it should not longer be used.[3]
