If Successful, Vaginal ARV Ring To Prevent HIV Infection In Women

Uganda yesterday launched clinical trials to test the effectiveness and safety of a ring containing an anti-retroviral drug, which is inserted in the vagina to prevent HIV infection in women.

If successful, the research in five African countries will give hope to women to get protection against infection without compromising adherence to the drug.

The other countries participating in the trials jointly conducted with the US national Institute of Health (NIH), are Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa.

I cant see Nigeria in this list tho.
