Crystal Ng, MPH is the senior officer for technical communications at the International Partnership for Microbicides (IPM), a nonprofit dedicated to developing new HIV prevention tools like the dapivirine ring and other sexual and reproductive health technologies for women, and making them available in developing countries. She has 12 years of experience designing, implementing, and advancing the knowledge management and monitoring & evaluation of programs working to strengthen health services, policies, and systems.
Leveraging its experience developing the first vaginal ring and long-acting product shown to help prevent HIV, the nonprofit International Partnership for Microbicides is now developing a three-month vaginal ring designed to reduce women’s HIV risk and prevent unplanned pregnancy. This innovative multipurpose prevention technology would offer women a discreet option to protect their sexual and reproductive health on their own terms.
