Anti-HIV vagina ring to be tested in Africa

Plans are underway to introduce a vagina ring in Africa which is expected to curb HIV infection  by 56%.
The ring has already been tested in teenage girls in the US, reports the BBC.
Infused with microbicides, the ring, which sits on the cervix, has been shown to cut infections by 56%, according to the BBC.

The six-month US trial gave the ring to 96 sexually active girls aged 15 to 17, who had not used it before.

Data presented at the IAS Conference on HIV Science, showed:
◾87% of the girls had detectable levels of the drug in their vagina
◾95% said the ring was easy to use
◾74% said they did not notice the ring in day-to-day life, the BBC reports.
Reports say the ring enhances satisfaction, contrary to initial concerns.
The ring which is removed every month, will help  protect women from the 'dishonesty' of some men, who can't be trusted when using condoms.

In fact, some men tend to break condoms when making love to women.
