Thousands of women in South Africa test anti-HIV products

Thousands of women in South Africa and elsewhere have volunteered for the world's largest clinical trials to test the efficacy of a range of anti-HIV products. Should the trials prove to be successful, they could prevent at least two-point-five million new infections in the developing world over the next five years. Dr Kim Dickson of the World Health Organisation in Geneva says once they are developed, these products could revolutionise women's lives. The largest trial involves nearly 12-thousand women in Durban and Johannesburg, Uganda and Tanzania. The first results of the trials will be discussed at a conference to be held in Cape Town next month.
