    Researchers in South Africa have found that a vaginal gel containing a prescription drug could dramatically cut the prevalence of HIV in woman.

    Results of a study in the country showed that the microbicide gel reduced the HIV infection rate by 39 per cent over two and a half years.

    Renowned singer Annie Lennox, who is also an AIDS activist, has told Al jazeera that the results of the gel trial is good news, but much more work still has to be done.
