Researchers Examining Potential For HIV Prevention Vaginal Ring

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog examines “the potential for a microbicide-containing vaginal ring that could remain in place for a month” as a tool for HIV prevention, noting “two grants from USAID totaling as much as $40 million” are helping researchers pursue the possibility. The blog discusses ongoing research and includes comments from International Partnership for Microbicides (IPM) Chief Executive Zeda Rosenberg (Barton, 11/4).
