What is the vaginal ring, the contraceptive method chosen by Flor Vigna
A silicone ring which is inserted into the vagina and gradually releases an antiviral is the first novelty in HIV prevention aimed specifically at women.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) gave its approval – a “positive scientific opinion” – to the device, intended mainly for women from countries where no access to antiviral treatments and in which the negotiation of the preservative within the couple it is not always easy, since it can face cultural rejections, as it happens in sub-Saharan Africa, points out the IPM (International Association for Microbicides, for its acronym in English).
The ring releases an antiviral, the dapivirinefor one month, and is intended to be used where the most effective prevention method, PrEP (a pill taken before unprotected intercourse), is not available.

In the world, UNAIDS It estimates that there are some 38 million people living with HIV, of whom more than five million are in Africa and almost six million in Asia. In sub-Saharan Africa, 60 percent occurs in women, according to the organization.
