  • Women Shun Clinic Over HIV Tests

    Pregnant women have spoken out about nurses forcing them to undergo testing without their informed consent.

    According to a new report by Amnesty International, many pregnant women fear going to state antenatal clinics because they believe they will be forced to test for HIV and that their status will not be kept private.

    The organisation states that delays in seeking antenatal care are responsible for a quarter of avoidable maternal deaths in South Africa, adding that, “These fears are not unfounded.”

  • Progress Made On New Super-Thin Condom

    Billionaire philanthropist, Bill Gates, says that progress is being made on developing a ‘next-generation’ ultra-thin, skin-like condom that could offer better sexual pleasure, help population control and be financed by first-world investors.
     
    Last year, the Microsoft co-founder and one of the world's richest men offered inventors US$100 000 in start-up grants to develop a ‘next-generation’ of super-sheath condoms through the charitable Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
     
    Gates notes that it looks like "there are some technological materials that will be able to maintain a (condom) barrier with a very thin, thin material."
