ICASA 2019 Road Map of HIV Vaccine Research and Development

The Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise is looking forward to the 20th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa (ICASA 2019) taking place on 2-7th December 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda.

ICASA represents the largest AIDS conference in Africa with over 10 000 delegates expected. The conference theme for 2019 is “AIDS free Africa – Innovation, Community and Political Leadership”. This is a tremendous opportunity for the international community to join efforts in committing to achieving an AIDS-free Africa.

Enterprise Workshop – Kigali 2019

Are you an African researcher or a clinician working on HIV vaccine research and development (R&D)? Are you interested in sharing your experience and the challenges you face in your daily work? Are you keen to develop practical solutions to support African researchers towards the development of a safe and effective HIV vaccine?

The Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise invites you to apply to attend an interactive half-day workshop in Kigali.

Strengthening African leadership in the new EU-Africa global health research partnerships

The Enterprise welcomes the European Union (EU) commitment to increase health security in sub-Saharan Africa and Europe, building on the current partnership between the EU, its Member States and sub-Saharan countries. These partnerships are essential for facilitating research, developing and improving health technologies, which in turn contributes to reducing the burden of infectious diseases.

IAS 2019: Promising HIV Vaccine Study Results Point to the Need to Intensify and Accelerate Preparation for Future Research and Access Challenges

The Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise welcomes the important and encouraging results of the ASCENT study and new clinical data from the APPROACH study presented at the 10th IAS Conference on HIV Science (IAS 2019), held in Mexico City, Mexico. These two studies build on the success of previous research using mosaic-based vaccines and provide important data to inform ongoing efforts to develop an effective, implementable vaccine regimen – a central part of a comprehensive, global HIV prevention strategy.

New home for a renewed Enterprise

The HIV vaccine field has built considerable momentum in recent times with multiple efficacy-stage programmes underway and new vaccine concepts in the clinical pipeline. The range of opportunities and possibilities is matched by a shared understanding and sense of urgency that the field is underprepared for the range of complex challenges that remain.

HIV Vaccine R&D at the IAS Science Conference 2019

The IAS Conference on HIV Science is the world’s most influential meeting on HIV research and its applications. This biennial conference presents the critical advances in basic, clinical and operational research that moves science into policy and practice. Through its open and inclusive programme development, the meeting sets the gold standard of HIV research featuring highly diverse and cutting-edge studies.

HIV Vaccine research and development will be very much featured before and during the conference.
