Diane Duke

Today is World AIDS Day. According to a recent report at AllAfrica.com, a study of 5,000 women in South Africa is being prepared to test a gel that helps prevent the transmission of the HIV virus. The gel, which contains drug Tenofovir, was shown in earlier studies to cut transmission of the HIV virus in women by 39 percent. According to estimates, if test results are successful, the gel could prevent up to 1.3 million new infections in Africa and 800,000 deaths from AIDS in Africa alone.
