The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation challenged scientists earlier this year to build a safer condom that would be more pleasurable to wear and encourage more consistent use to prevent HIV infections and unplanned pregnancies. Last month the philanthropy gave $100,000 grants to 11 of the more than 800 applicants. Successful projects will be eligible for additional funding of as much as $1 million.
