World AIDS Day 2016: HIV Prevention for Women

This World AIDS Day, women have reason to be optimistic that a new era may be at hand – one in which they could have more choices to protect themselves against HIV.

Earlier this year, a novel monthly vaginal ring developed by the International Partnership for Microbicides became the first long-acting method to show efficacy in two Phase III clinical trials.

Watch this video to learn about the dapivirine ring and IPM’s next steps to potentially put the discreet, self-initiated product into the hands of women at high risk for HIV.

Nicolet’s Story

On a journey to understand one of our generation’s greatest challenges and opportunities – ending the AIDS epidemic – Global Fund Ambassador Diane Kruger met Nicolet, a young woman living with HIV, in a small township near Cape Town in South Africa where young women and girls are twice as likely to contract HIV as their male peers. This is Nicolet’s story.

In South Africa and many of the other countries hardest hit by HIV, the Global Fund supports programs which are working to prevent HIV-infection for women and girls, as well as treatment and support for those who are infected. The NGOs Thembacare and Yabonga are two of the Global Fund-supported implementing partners carrying out this essential work.
