SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has taken the world by surprise, just as HIV did in the 1980’s. However, unlike HIV, the world has come together and shown that a coordinated, global response to a pandemic is possible in record time. Many aspects of this response, including the search for a vaccine, have built upon technologies and lessons learned from recent epidemics, including HIV.
Established in 2003, the Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise (the Enterprise) became a programme of IAS – the International AIDS Society – in 2018. The Enterprise unites stakeholders to share knowledge, foster collaboration, enable solutions and expand support critical to the development of – and future access to – an HIV vaccine.
