Are Rectal Douches Ripe for Further Rectal Microbicide Exploration?

Rectal douching is a relatively common behavior across the world. So, should we be thinking seriously about developing a rectal microbicide as a douche? What do we know about rectal douching behavior globally? What are some of the most popular products used and by whom? What are the implications for rectal microbicide research and development? What are the gaps in rectal douche science?

Presenters Marjan Javanbakht and Jerome Galea engaged our participants on each of these questions and discussed recent research.
