Joint statement on Savvy Phase 3 trial in Ghana to test the effectiveness of Savvy Gel in preventing HIV

cially the volunteers who have helped by their participation in this study.

Contraception trials of Savvy being conducted by other organizations in the United States with the support of the National Institutes of Health will continue as planned. Enrollment is continuing in the comparative contraception study at numerous sites in the U.S., and planning is underway for a second study for contraception, also in the U.S. Additional studies to examine Savvy's effectiveness against other sexually transmitted infections, including herpes, are planned in the near future.

FHI looks forward to continuing to work with partners on studies of Savvy and other microbicides with the potential to help prevent HIV.

Microbicide trials are critical to identifying new HIV prevention tools to reduce the number of individuals who become infected with HIV worldwide. Heterosexual contact accounts for more than 70 percent of all HIV infections worldwide. Correct and consistent use of male condoms has been shown to prevent HIV infection, but women are often unable to negotiate condom use with their male partners. This study is important because a woman-controlled method, such as a topical gel, would be an important addition to current preventive methods.
