This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

A bill has been filed with the Philippines House of Representatives calling for the development of microbicidal products to prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Representative Narciso Santiago pointed to the large social and economic burden of STDs in the country, where the most common infections include HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B, herpes and the human papilloma virus. The bill calls for the department of health to carry out more studies into mechanisms of infection and to develop animal testing models, and for other research into products, delivery systems and their use.
