Find A Vaccine
One hour of research
HIV/AIDS is the defining scientific and developmental challenge of our time. AIDS has claimed over 25 million lives and continues to devastate entire countries. To meet this challenge, we need the world’s best scientists. The traditional vaccine approach has not worked with HIV, so scientists are attempting to develop one without a roadmap. With 14,000 infections each day, accelerating the timetable towards a vaccine is a global health and development priority.
Your gift will pay for an hour of an AIDS vaccine researcher’s time. IAVI is committed to finding an AIDS vaccine for use throughout the world. IAVI’s scientific team, drawn largely from the vaccine industry, researches and develops AIDS vaccine candidates and conducts HIV clinical trials and research. IAVI prioritizes the most promising products and moves them swiftly through the vaccine development pipeline. Despite the challenges, scientists believe that an AIDS vaccine is possible. IAVI is a founding member of the Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise, an initiative that brings together the major players in the field to enhance scientific coordination to identify new strategies and mechanisms to accelerate the global vaccine effort. Even a modestly effective AIDS vaccine would slash the number of new infections, saving tens of millions of lives. Your gift will help speed this critical search for a vaccine.
