Computer for a lab
Currently, around 40 million people are living with HIV/AIDS around the world. Every day, there are 14,000 new infections, 95 percent in the developing world. A vaccine is the best hope for stopping AIDS, and trials of vaccine candidates are necessary to find a safe and effective vaccine. Access to technology is essential for sharing data and conducting vaccine trials, however this technology is hard to come by in the rural areas where we work.
Your gift will provide a computer for one of our nine field sites across East and Southern Africa. AIDS vaccine clinical studies are very complex and data intensive, so local scientists need access to high-tech computers. Your support will ensure that these local researchers have all the tools they need in their search for an AIDS vaccine. AIDS vaccine research requires complicated technology. Your gift of a computer for one of our field laboratories will help to speed the search for an AIDS vaccine as well as build capacity in the developing world.
