H.R. 3854—The Microbicide Development Act

On September 21, 2005, Representative Christopher Shays (R-CT) introduced H.R. 3854, the Microbicide Development Act, to facilitate the development of microbicides for preventing transmission of HIV and other diseases, and for other purposes. Research provisions would require the Director of the NIH Office of AIDS Research to: 1) expedite implementation of a Federal microbicide research and development strategic plan, 2) expand, intensify and coordinate the relevant activities of appropriate NIH research components, and 3) prepare and submit, within six months of enactment and annually thereafter, a report to Congress on Federal microbicide research implementation strategies. The bill would also require the Director of NIAID to establish a microbicide development unit within its Division of AIDS. The measure also contains provisions for relevant activities at the CDC and the U.S. Agency for International Development. H.R. 3854, which has 29 cosponsors, was referred to the House Committees on Energy and Commerce and on International Relations.
