Anti-HIV Gel For Women

According to a study conducted by the Center for the AIDS Program of Research in South Africa, the gel contains the effective anti-HIV drug tenofovir and could reduce the risk of infection by 39 percent if women use the vaginal gelatin before or within 12 hours after sexual intercourse.

Michel Sidibe, secretary general of the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS said the new research result provides women with a possibility of preventing HIV infection.
"It is the first research result specific to protect women from HIV infection. If this research result pass through the further examinations, it will be an effective way to prevent the spread of AIDS," he said.
